update on the best african poetry 2009

I have extended the deadline to submit nominations for the Best African Poetry 2009 collection: to 18 February 2009. Please read the initial announcement for more complete details on eligibility and rationale.

My thanks to all who have sent in nominations to date -- both of their own work and that of others -- and do please spread the word among friends and colleagues and invite them to send in additional nominations. I am gratified by all those who have answered the call but would love to see and welcome many, many more.

Once the deadline for submissions has passed I will post additional information on the process of and expected timeline for notification of nominees, editing and printing.

On an unrelated matter: become a fan of african poetry review (usa) on Facebook (for those of you with profiles) and help us evangelize on behalf of African poetry.
