The Lagos International Poetry Festival (LIPFest) is announced to commence on October 21 through 24. The event is set for its seventh outing with the theme  titled “Ancestral Imaginings.” The organizers shared on Instagram, that it hoped the festival will lean “into the wisdom and vision, of the old and the young, to guide us through the rubble of a pandemic. A generational journey aided by generational memory.”


The theme emphasizes on the need to lean into the existing storehouses of knowledge to illuminate the present moment. It also brought into revival a classic figure of African literary thought. The festival is believed to reactivate the idea for contemporary poetic explorations.

According to the organizers, The 2021 Lagos International Poetry Festival will be a hybrid of both virtual and in-person events. It will engage a “diverse pool of writers, poets and thinkers drawn from across generations.” And also, conversations and performances on several themes “converging on the role of inter-generational support systems in building stronger, post-pandemic societies organized around egalitarian principles.”

The Lagos International Poetry Festival was initiated by poet, Efe Paul Azino. The annual festival is considered as one of the largest poetry-centered gathering of performers and creative professionals.
