Description : Consisting of 214 poems and 79 poets, from over 23 African countries and the Diasporas, Best New African Poets 2015 Anthology: Poetry contains poems that deal with a panoply of issues, feelings, thoughts, ideas, beliefs, on identity, Africanness (Blackness, Whiteness, Arabic, Asian), culture, heritage, place, politics, (mis)governance, corruption, exile, loss, memory, spirituality, sex, gender, love, the individual and many others. It travels from Cape to Cairo, Monrovia to Nairobi, rooms in the beautiful Moroccan Sahara desert, pastoral idyllic Savannas, the rainy equatorial rainforests and then flies into the Diasporas as each poet speaks his/her own story of the Africa that she/he knows, dreams and envisions with protective pride and resolute dedication.

Description : Best New African Poets 2016 Anthology has 251 pieces from 131 poets and artists in 7 languages (English, Portuguese, French, Afrikaans, Shona, Yoruba and Kiswahili) from 24 African countries and Diasporas, with South African and Angolan poets dominating the list. We also have a healthy number of poets from Uganda, Zimbabwe, Kenya, Moambique, Ghana, and Nigeria, as usual. The nationalist sense is the one that most predominates with its pink, blue and gray tints that are expressed in parallel with existentialist perspectives that in turn go hand in hand with love, desire, hankering, joy, sensuality that transports us to epic, lyrical, utopian contexts without being lost in fantasy, they are artistic lines sometimes with traditional and sometimes more innovative touches. However, in contrast and to a lesser extent, almost as if there were resistant and with restraint we also find desolation, pain, negation that can be so sweet or so bitter that it allows the imagination to stop in a lament or end in resignation.

Description : Best “New” African Poets 2018 Anthology follows volumes in 2017, 2016 and 2015. In this fourth volume of these continent-wide anthologies of African poetry we have work from 154 African poets from over 30 African countries and the African Diasporas. There are poems in English, French, Portuguese, Sepedi, Shona, Yoruba, and Asante Twi languages. In 2018 there was a notable increase in the number of entries with memorable novelties regarding poetic experimentation: some of the poets have daringly sliced up words playing around with the spatial and structural patterns of their texts on paper. This may be described as both textual and visual poetry. Reading the poems becomes a journey with many paths, where the reader walks according to poetic rhythms and the hesitating breaks of action verbs and enjambments.

Many poets have gone on to publish their first collection and more, several have won prizes all over the world, some have become academics, some influential performers of their work and some have travelled all over the world presenting their work. This year’s Best “New” African Poets 2019 Anthology there is 197 poems from a more than one hundred poets (including collaborations) writing in English, Portuguese, French, and a whole host of African indigenous languages. Featured are poems which deal with love, relationships, politics, governance, spirituality, existence, identity and place. We invite you to this year’s anthology to engage with the most important new African poets writing from the continent and the diasporas and enjoy this African pot-pouri of art and life.

Description : From The frightening Big Noise of the approaching caterpillars sent by government to build a new dam; to the thundering Other Noises of the caterpillars, again sent by government to destroy their shacks; and to the graduates playing soccer wearing full regalia in the streets of Harare, life for the average citizen has never been the same. Then the 93-year-old president, Robert Mugabe, was forced to announce his resignation, and Tonderai, one of his secret agents skips the country fearing for his life. Of course, that was after another big noise that saw armoured cars and many people filling the streets of the capital, rejoicing that the dictator had been deposed. Before that there were other noises that frightened people away from their homes, but this time the noises that frightened people were made by those who had silenced the big noise. A confusion reigned. Graduates were jobless. People fled the country to other countries to become political as well as economic refugees.

Description : This project come out from our need to harness voices in Africa and Latin America, giving these voices an opportunity to converse, argue, synthesize, agree, and share ideas on the craft of writing, on life, on being and on thinking for the benefit of all. It was also an opportunity to create literary friendships and contacts between these two great regions. Generally, Latin America and Africa still have a lot of stories to share among themselves and with the rest of the world. There are still very strong untapped storytelling traditions in these continents. The stories in this volume are selected from an amazing range of entries to a call for contributions to an anthology on experimentation. It is hoped this robust selection will serve a wide variety of tastes in both Spanish and English, and that the book will open dialogue and the sharing of ideas between the two regions and the whole world. This is an invaluable contribution on many fronts.

Nurturing South-South interactions and interlocutions, spiritually is an open ended discourse and praxis. It is envisioned that this ground-breaking idea will serve as a testament to future cooperations between the two continents. It is hoped Africa and Asia can use their competencies, i.e., human capital, culture, and langauges, histories, and deconstructionist agendas, to create developmental competences and this book highlights and explore a number of pathways that creatives of the two lands can explore and exploit as they march into a future of Weltliteratur. The cast and nature of the book and its content is a product of thought, imagination and environment. We invite you to it’s offerings that individually, and collectively, accentuate our allied artistic commitment to the Humanities as an arena of thought on identities, languages, cultures, histories and epistemologies of postcolonial posture.

Description : Open up a world of Zimbabwean storytelling: 20 writers, one powerful message. Moving On bristles with the talent of writers from Zimbabwe. This collection brings together twenty of Zimbabwe’s finest storytellers, from within the country and without. Many of the characters in this anthology are themselves moving on: from the chains of the past, from the loss of loved ones, from long-held beliefs. Some from life itself and others to a brighter future. Between the covers the reader will encounter the father who uses his take on democracy to name the family dog, the villager who desperately waits for shoes and salt to ward off witchcraft, the young man who flees with the book, the boys who hide from the big noise, and a host of other characters.

Description : Poetry is fragments of music thrown into the air. The primary job and aim of a poet is to create these musical notes, to play these musical notes, and the wind will take these fragment notes, sounds, musics into the ears of listeners. Zimbolicious Poetry Anthology, Volume 2 is one of those winds among many others. As we all are aware of, when the wind travels it has no boundaries, it collects, it deposits, it mixes things up; you never know where that leaf you see the wind carrying will eventually be deposited, is there another wind, another element that is going to move that leaf to another place... We firmly believe it is a good wind. It will be able to push our poetry making in Zimbabwe into other frontiers. Zimbolicious Poetry Anthology, Volume 2 continues from where we left off with the first Zimbolicious Poetry Anthology we created in 2016. In this Volume 2, we have 77 poems from 30 poets and translators, which include among others; experienced poets, academic poets, street poets, emergent poets, beginning poets, all telling stories associated with what all these poets refer to as home, that is, Zimbabwe. It is an ongoing debate on what is Zimbabwe, what we want our Zimbabwe to be socially, culturally, politically, thus we allowed every opinion space in this anthology, whether us editors agree with them or not. We have poets tackling issues to do with poetry, writing in general, art, place, identity, tradition, struggle, culture, gender, collective understanding, religion, individual, human rights and love, among others.

Description : Questions surrounding democracy, governance, and development especially in the view of Africa have provoked acrimonious debates in the past few years. It remains a perennial question why some decades after political independence in Africa the continent continues experiencing bad governance, lagging behind socioeconomically, and its democracy questionable. We admit that a plethora of theories and reasons, including iniquitous and malicious ones, have been conjured in an attempt to explain and answer the questions as to why Africa seems to be lagging behind other continents in issues pertaining to good governance, democracy and socio-economic development. Yet, none of the theories and reasons proffered so far seems to have provided enduring solutions to Africa’s diverse complex problems and predicaments. This book dissects and critically examines the matrix of Africa’s multifaceted problems on governance, democracy and development in an attempt to proffer enduring solutions to the continent’s long-standing political and socio-economic dilemmas and setbacks.

Description : In Nationalism: (Mis)Understanding Donald Trump’s Capitalism, Racism, Global Politics, International Trade and Media Wars, Africa VS North America Vol 2, we have 10 essays, 3 fiction pieces, 51 poems, 2 plays from leading and upcoming writers, essayists, academicians and poets from the two regions, Africa and North America and their Diasporas, in these among other countries, USA, Canada, Sweden, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Nigeria, Ghana, Botswana, Kenya, UK etc…, coming together to transact around issues to do with the nationalism espoused by Donald Trump. Cornell dissects issues to do with blackness and racism using Fanon’s theories, Nyongesa deals with the Fetishism of Donald Trump’s policies known colloquially as Trumpism, Opicho calls it ‘inoracy’, Donald Trump’s statement, “Shit-hole”, some essayists took to the personal narrative you would find in Mhondera and Kantey’s essays, yet Pravda used the middle ground between playwriting, Filmmaking and the essay form, Ofodile investigates the problematic issue of Boko Horam terrorism in North Nigeria, Bearly looks at capitalism, so does Koffi with his French Language essay which is also translated into English, Ifeachor in his poem has praise for Donald Trump, Hall goes back to apartheid South Africa period and as a direct tangent Matshoba deals with Xenophobia in his letter written from the future. Smith looks at the white supremacist demonstrations, for or against Trump, Thompson and Swanson encourage us to unfocus on Donald Trump, and Thompson rightly blames us for allowing the likes of Donald Trump and the kind of Nationalism and Capitalism he stands for to grow. Thus this collection of writings is rich, robust and very interesting and will be invaluable to scholarship to do with Nationalism, Capitalism, Media freedoms, Global Politics, Racism and International trade.

The poems in this volume capture an all-encompassing landscape marked by alienation, despair, displacement, loss, anger, trauma, as well as courage, hope, heroism, justice and resilience. These poems also engender psychic healing which has the potential of turning victims into survivors. With over 100 poems by 73 poets—seasoned and emerging, old and young, men and women—this collection is not only a guidepost of collective memory, but also the definitive literary work of this period in Cameroon’s checkered history.
