Submissions open for 20.35 Africa: An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry

Deadline: March 17 2018

Submissions are open to African poets for 20.35 Africa: An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, an upcoming anthology guest-edited by Sudan’s Safia Elhillo, co-winner of the 2015 Brunel International African Poetry Prize and Nigeria’s Gbenga Adesina, co-winner of the 2016 Brunel International African Poetry Prize. The publishers hope to publish around 40 African poets.

The anthology will consider work by African poets who fall between the 20-35 years age bracket. The anthology is ONLY for African poets. We see an African poet as someone born in Africa, or whose parents (at least one) is African, or someone who currently lives in Africa, and has done so for a minimum of 10 years. Poets who were born in African countries, and have lived up to ten years of their lives there, but are currently pursuing academic programmes in non-African countries can also submit.
