The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Agbowó - Poetry (Go to Fiction)

Limited Demographic: writers of African origin

Note: Although they are generally always open for submissions, only send one per submission window.

We are looking for poems from poets of African origin that move us by the freshness and keenness of their sound, their fluidity, the orality of their verse and the profundity of their theses. We also welcome humorous poems and political poems.

Graduating and ambitious, the founding editorial team decided to carve out a literary magazine and open up to Africa. And, thus, Agbowó was born. While the scope was broader with Agbowó, the aim was not all too dissimilar from that of the mother organization - to create a common space. In this case, a common space for showcasing and celebrating African literary and visual art and by that measure, engendering community. While the magazine bears the name of the street opposite the University of Ibadan and could be seen as symbolizing our move into the wider world, our usage of “Agbowó” is broader and, as one of the founding editors put it, means - “collectors of things of value”. We have since committed ourselves to the seeking out and amplification of emerging voices on the continent.
