uHlanga is a poetry press based in Cape Town, South Africa, committed to publishing new, experimental and classic works of southern African poetry. It is founded and directed by Nick Mulgrew.

Founded in 2014 as an annual magazine of poetry from KwaZulu-Natal, uHlanga now focuses on publishing single-author collections. We also publish some edited anthologies and chapbooks.

Our titles have been translated into numerous languages, named Book of the Year by City Press and the Sunday Times, and have won a number of local and international awards, including the Ingrid Jonker Prize, the South African Literary Award for Poetry, and the Glenna Luschei Prize for African Poetry.
