OUR STORY

The Custodians of African literature COAL, is a literary organization with an interactive model that seeks to promote African Literature by creating expressive platforms for the exploration of young and new voices in the literary space within Africa.
 
COAL is also passionate about making African Literature accessible through the COAL Literature Store. The store is the social enterprise arm of the organization focused on making African literature available and affordable. After recognizing the difficulty faced in accessing African literature; the inability to exchange or recycle old books for new ones considering the cost of books and the stringent payment structures of most stores limiting the variety of books most book lovers can purchase. COAL’s Literature store is the arm of the organization that makes books not only accessible but also affordable; Our mission is to use all tools within our reach to make books affordable and available to all individuals who need them.
 
Our Literary Space explores genres in poetry, spoken word and other forms of creative writing. As an organization dedicated to encourage creative writing, we thereby provide platforms, support to develop the creativity of writers in touch with the organization. We hope to see a society of youths who will be involved in building up a more creative, intelligent and proactive society through literature. We make literary platforms available for interested youths in the art of creative writing and the performing aspects of it. We believe in giving credence to young voices in pursuit of self expression and social justice through their art
