Ray Ndebi

Poetry Editor
I always define myself as the one in the mind of words. Passionate of Literature since my 8th year on earth, I started reading books of English Poetry when I was 10. Now I spend my days and my nights with words, those coming from Nature and those from books.
Author of the novel, The Last Ghost: Son of struggle, I am also author of a large number of unpublished poems (French and English). Mentor of many authors around the world, I provide customized workshops online and physically. Everything that is written is my concern.
My areas of competence are: translating, reviewing, analysing literature, training reviewers and analysts, content specialist, researching in new ways of achieving writing and reading.
I currently live in Yaounde, Cameroon, where I’m Vice-President of Le Salon de Littérature Yaounde-Cameroon, a group of authors and passionate of Literature.
My love for words naturally makes me a Children’s defender, especially the poor and vulnerable ones. Education and well-being are my priority. As an active member of OneAfricanChild Foundation for Creative Learning, Vice-President of PROMISE Africa and Coordination Team of HEADA Cameroon, I dedicate my days to the Peace-building Process.
I only have one line in life, when it comes to words: What your eyes see only become vital when it’s your souls writing it.
