Upcoming Anthology: The Voice of Kenyan Poets

Laminsa Indies, in cooperation with blankVoice POETRY, now accepts submissions for an upcoming anthology of poems. This anthology is exclusive to Kenyan writers.

Submission email: shortprose22@gmail.com

Submission deadline: June 10, 2022

Responses to submissions: July 1 -30, 2022.

Book release date: October 1, 2022.

What we are looking for

This is an assorted poetry collection. Writers can submit upto five poems of any format, style and theme. However, the poems must be own composition – plagiarism of any type, be it in part or whole, will lead to immediate cancelation. The use of racist language and elements of offensive romantic candour in submissions will also amount to disqualification.

The submission must be sent as one word document, typed in Times New Roman font, with a leading of 2.0 points (double-spaced) and must not exceed fifteen A-4 size pages. Ensure you entitle your poems and provide brief synopsis for each.

An author bio, not more than 30 words, is also welcome.

Remember to submit to shortprose22@gmail.com not later than June 10, 2022, indicating in the subject line: The Voice of Kenyan Poets (your preferred author name in brackets).

Here’s a sample email body:
