The #Babishai2018 shortlist is like the tip of molten lava. It’s an eruption of the usual poetry; an assortment of some of the finest poetry. What a powerful selection! The judges, Alfred Msadala, Rehema Nanfuka and Remi Raj, have had one of the most difficult and yet compelling tasks, to emerge with this list.

We congratulate each of the brilliant poets on this list.
