20.35 Africa

At 20.35 Africa, we are committed to a gradual but steady promotion of contemporary African poetry and poets. Our main objective is to grow in being a resource institution for African poets, targeting the needs of both the poets in the center and those at the margin of the scene. To establish the structures currently lacking for the African poet, such as prizes, masterclasses, fellowships, workshops, residencies. To rethink the existing processes of the production and dissemination of contemporary African poetry and come up with innovative ideas for greater efficiency. To utilize digital tools and other forms of new media in capacity building for contemporary African poetry and poets.
