This is all about African literature, everything: news, reviews, gossips, names to watch, others to forget, deadwood resurrected, others about to die.

It is on, friends. African poetry has a home now. I am so proud to be part of this project.
Poetry magazine and indeed the entire Centre for African
Poetry project arrives at a challenging but interesting moment for
poetry practice in Africa and the rest of the world. What we do have in
the African practice, as demonstrated by the
establishment of this Centre, is renewed confidence in our capacity
to move things forward,hopefully make them better, certainly make them different, make them mean and
matter more to our poetry public and beyond.
Take a tour of this great project and leave us a message.
