African Sun Press is the leading publisher of poetry anthologies in South Africa. We recognise poetry as an eloquent and curative language of the human heart. It is essential for the succinct expression of truth and beauty and it should be prescribed daily, in abundant measure, for the general well-being of everyone.
We produce the definitive AFRICA! Anthologies and the Poetry in McGregor Anthologies. We hold the archive of Stanzas One-to-Twenty.
We are associates of Poetry in McGregor through whom we present the annual Patricia Schonstein Poetry in McGregor Award.
Please consider donating an anthology to a school, library, literacy project or charity working with prisoners.
The poetry book I would like to see placed in every child’s hands, is The Phoebe Book of Poems for Children. Buy this book from the Cactus Foundation.
THE PHOEBE BOOK OF POEMS FOR CHILDREN

“As a curator of anthologies, I’ve found the sharing of poetry to be an evocative way of kindling light within the dark places of the human condition. In my experience, poetry can be like prayer, both in its composition and in its recitation. Poetry is an extraordinary conveyancer of beauty, love and forgiveness. Thus it is surely the best gift for anyone incarcerated by the bars of poverty, sorrow, loneliness, loss and even hatred.”
