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)

Deadline for entries is 15 October, 2015

“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 or Daniel Purificacao on these emails: or
