It is on, friends. African poetry has a home now.  I am so proud to be part of this project.

African 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.
