Call for Poetry Submissions: A Song for Burundi

Huza Press in collaboration with Africa Writes and Jalada Africa is pleased to announce a call for submissions for a poetry anthology from Burundians living in exile.

Inspired by the creative force of the large Burundian population living in Rwanda, this anthology entitled A Song for Burundi seeks to bring together poetry across different forms, communities and traditions exploring experiences of migration, loss, hope, belonging and longing. It will bring new and diverse voices from Burundi to international audiences and force us to engage with the realities of displacement and conflict.

The selected poems will be published in an anthology that will be launched at the Africa Writes Festival in London in July 2017.

The deadline for submission is April 15, 2017. Visit our website for the guidelines.
