Mystery Books, an imprint Mystery Publishers, has cancelled the publication of Sketches of Urban Strife: An Anthology of New Age African Poetry due to challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Additionally, the editor in-charge of the project got engaged somewhere else and won’t be able to proceed with the project in the foreseeable future.
To all the participants who submitted their poems, the rights to your contributions revert back to you; you may submit your works to other opportunities. Thank you for participating, we couldn’t have done it without you; it’s just unfortunate we couldn’t birth this project.
We appreciate the editor, Nyashadzashe Chikumbu (Chikata Chinamavara), from Zimbabwe, for initiating this wonderful project.
We are grateful to some of the participants who authorized us to publish their poems in our new anthology, ‘Our Stories Redefined’. You are wonderful.
