Poemify Publishers

Who We Are

Poemify, a literary brand, is to amplifying and redefining African literature by enabling African writers to monetize their stories both within and outside Africa. As a book publishing firm we serve as a one-stop platform for African writers to get access to professional digital publishing services at cheaper rates, and for readers to get access to the amazing art created by African writers. Poemify is also a fast growing online bookstore for download of audiobooks, ebooks and purchase of paperback books. 

Founded by Jaachi Anyatonwu, Poemify is run by a team of volunteer writers, editors, artists, and creatives. We publish and promote stories, poems, articles and ebooks written by African writers. The dream is to make Poemify a leading self publishing firm covering all publishing steps ranging from Editing, Designing, and Publishing, Printing, Distribution, Promotion, etc.

Our Goal

Our goal is to encourage reading/writing culture of African youths and also have their works published with ease. With Poemify, I hope to start an African literary prize and writing workshops to help authors and writers leverage experts, platform, and funding as growth catalysts. We are dedicated to promoting African self-published or Indie Authors.

Our Mission

Our mission is to give young writers a space in the literary world to showcase their creativity, to inspire young writers to strive for excellence using their talents and skills, and also to impact lives, initiate positive change in the African continent and also entertain.
