Imbiza Journal for African Writing

Vol. 1 | Issue 3 | Poetry Africa Edition




Although this publication is not exhaustive in representing contemporary poets from South Africa, Africa and the diaspora, it makes a strong statement about its commitment to amplifying African voices. The new generation of poets include Siphokazi Jonas, the featured poet at this year’s Poetry Africa, the phenomenal Koleka Putuma, and Page, who developed through the ranks of Poetry Africa as a regular participant in their Poetry Slam component, continue to entrench their voices on the cultural landscape. Imbiza exists because poets, writers and scholars exist and need publishing platforms.
