Promoting African Literature through expressive platforms in Africa
WHO WE ARE
We are a Literary Organization with the goal of promoting African Literature through the provision of expressive platforms for writers and communities.

Our open mics are in genres such as spoken word poetry, short story readings and music performances from anyone who needs the space.
COAL’s Book Readings is an event of readings, literary discussions, interactions and book review with a guest author.
— Social Impact
We are passionate about civic engagements that border on social impact through the execution of community focused projects.
— COAL School Clubs
The “Catch them young” mantra is as old as time itself. The school club tries to improve the reading culture among teens in Africa
— Community Outreaches
We are passionate about civic engagements that bother on social impact through the execution of community-focused projects.
— Spoken Rhythm
Spoken Rhythm is our annual literary event staged to promote consumer-friendly poetry through entertaining performances accompanied by live music and theatre.
COAL is creating an inspiring learning community for young people.
In the Chronicles of Literature COAL deserves the alpha as well as the omega pages *applauds*
HELP US TAKE
SPOKEN WORD POETRY
TO SCHOOLS IN AFRICA
Beyond the regular formal education obtained in Nigeria and other African countries, we want to create an avenue where teens and young adults can express themselves through literary education powered by spoken word poetry.
