--Publishers Weekly, Spring 2018 Announcements, Poetry
"[James's] limited-edition chapbook was selected by Kwame Dawes, Chris Abani, and the African Poetry Book Fund, in collaboration with Akashic Books, for the 2018 New-Generation African Poets Box Set, and I am tickled pink for its release this month. James's voice is so unique and genuine; she's definitely a poet to have on your poetdar, and I'm sure this whole collection will be stellar."
--The Coil, Omotara James's "Daughter Tongue" included in Books We Can't Wait to Read in 2018 and Most Anticipated April 2018 Books
Critical Praise for the Previous Chapbook Box Sets:
"An ambitious, vital project that delivers exactly what it promises...As a group, the chapbooks dispel stereotypes about African writing. They also illustrate what editors Dawes and Abani note about the many ways poets can understand or redefine their ties to Africa."
--Washington Post on New-Generation African Poets: A Chapbook Box Set (Tatu)
"Dawes and Abani have taken on the vital project of publishing short collections by contemporary poets from Africa, packaged together in beautiful boxed sets."
--New York Times Magazine
The limited-edition box set is an annual project started in 2014 to ensure the publication of up to a dozen chapbooks by African poets through Akashic Books. The series seeks to identify the best poetry written by African poets working today, and it is especially interested in featuring poets who have not yet published their first full-length book of poetry.
The eleven poets included in this box set are: Leila Chatti, Saddiq Dzukogi, Amanda Holiday, Omotara James, Yalie Kamara, Rasaq Malik, Umniya Najaer, Kechi Nomu, Romeo Oriogun, Henk Rossouw, and Alexis Teyie.
