Nigerian NewsDirect will be open to poetry submissions for its Poetry Column-NND beginning January 2021. We hope to publish one poem per week in our newspaper by Nigerian poets & are open to a diversity of voices—established & emerging. Check out our website for older publications to have an idea of what we publish.
We intend to pay a token of N5,000 per poem. Our response time is one week; after which you can send an inquiry mail.
Submission Period: Saturday – Wednesday every week (Entries submitted on Thursday and Friday will remain unread).
– Send in one poem not more than 50 lines to firstname.lastname@example.org
– Submit the poem in the body of the mail.
– Send in bio not more than 50 words.
– Twitter and Instagram handles should be listed therein.
While the right to the poem reverts to each poet upon publication, Poetry Column-NND reserves the right to republish each published poem in its annual anthology at the end of each year.
