African Poetry Book Fund

The African Poetry Book Fund promotes and advances the development and publication of the poetic arts through its book series, contests, workshops, and seminars and through its collaborations with publishers, festivals, booking agents, colleges, universities, conferences and all other entities that share an interest in the poetic arts of Africa. We are committed to seeking the resources to support this mission and to ensure that all its efforts are carried out with excellence.

Established by Kwame Dawes in 2012, the African Poetry Book Fund promotes the writing and publication of African poetry through an international complex of additional collaborations and partnerships.
