CALL FOR POEMS

BEST “NEW” AFRICAN POETS 2015: 100 poems, 100 poets

We are calling for BEST 1-3 poems per poet from Africa (living in Africa) or of African descent (Diasporas) to be included in BEST “NEW” AFRICAN POETS 2015: 100 Poems, 100 Poets Anthology. Poems of any topic, form… but less than 40 lines, must be in any 3 languages; French, English, and Portuguese. The anthology to be edited by Tendai
Mwanaka and Daniel de Purificacao, is earmarked for publication by Langaa RPCIG (Cameroon)

“New” maybe newness of form or newness to the genre…, preference will be given to younger poets to help them grow as poets.

Entries should be in one doc, include also your contact information, country of stay or country of origin and a bio note of not more than 50 words.

We are looking at selecting:

English poets- 40 poets
French poets- 30 poets
Portuguese poets- 20 poets
Guests poets- 10 poets (by invitation only)

Unfortunately due to financial constraints we won’t be offering contributors free copies but poets will benefit immensely from this exposure.

Entries should be sent to Tendai Mwanaka at mwanaka@yahoo.com or Daniel Purificacao at danieljose26@yahoo.com.br.
