Afro-Anthology Series is a literary space that serves as a platform for showcasing creative nonfiction exclusively from the African continent. AFS was founded by Basit Jamiu in 2016 and it is currently run by eight young talented Africans which include Tope Akintayo, Emmanuel Dairo, Uzoma Ihejirika, Jennifer Emelife, Nana Sule, Ademola Adefolami, Hauwa Shaffii, Omoya Simult.
Afro Anthology Series was born out of the idea that African literary space needs a narrative nonfiction anthology which will speak to people in the same way that good fiction can. Creative Nonfiction as a genre is largely overlooked in the African literary space, so that it was hard to find a collection of nonfiction by African writers in a calendar year. Due to this, Afro Anthology Series aimed to redress this imbalance by putting together a collection of provocative and personal creative nonfiction by African writers every two years. This inagural year, Afro Anthology Series published Selves: An Afro Anthology of Creative Nonfiction.”
