Over the years, poetry, as one of the genres of literature, has gained
little or no attention from the public. This, without accrediting the
unrealistic side of history, has affected the rate at which people
write and read (Poetry). It appears to be negating the rise of
Literature in African.
         With this incessant bane of low readership plus a few and
fidgety writers, Poetry Corner, a branchild of BookRepublic, aims to
revive and revitalize the dying spirit of Poetry in Africa. We are strongly bent towards
setting the pace for young African poets, whose crafts are not only good,
but also challenging and inspiring.

Rules for submission:

* Any writer who wishes to submit must be from any country in Africa.

*He/She must be between the ages of 18 to 30.

*Every submitter should consider one poem each.

* Poem should not be less than 40lines.

Submissions should be directed to

NP: Only the best THREE poems will be selected and published on At the
end of every month, compensation will go to the BEST POEM out of the
published poems.
