Witsprouts Anthologies

Witsprouts Anthologies is one of Witsprouts’ media and publishing channels. It was created with a mission to provide a dynamic platform to nurture, amplify, and celebrate world-class literary talent. We’re fostering a community that values storytelling as a means of expression, connection, and exploration, and at the same time, we’re catalyzing the discovery and development of diverse voices. We aim to document true life experiences and experience-based insights through literary projects, with a specific focus on Africans and Black Diasporans in the 21st century.

Our vision is to create an inclusive and vibrant space in the literary landscape, where emerging talent gets recognition or opportunities for growth, and where established talents get to contribute to the growth of the landscape through participation. Witsprouts Anthologies aims to be a hub that captures the essence of human existence through the interception of storytelling and self- and nature consciousness. We are fostering empathy, understanding, and dialogue with readers from all walks of life through the presentation of a carefully curated range of projects.
