About

Contemporary Ghanaian Writers Series (CGWS) is a literary initiative created to promote Ghana’s contemporary writing scene by publishing the works of emerging writers particularly of Ghanaian descent. This initiative, we believe, is critical to the continued development of Ghanaian literature.
At CGWS, we provide a platform for emerging writers to contribute to, connect and build a relationship with the writing and reading communities in Ghana.
CGWS traces its roots back to the publication of ‘to grow in two bodies’ an anthology published in 2019, which featured the work of mostly Ghanaian writers. With the success and rave reviews for the anthology, CGWS was formed to continue this initiative and also roll out other projects that will be beneficial for Ghana’s literary space.
