Augustine Sam is a journalist by profession, a novelist by choice, and a poet by chance.

Background Information

Augustine Sam is a bi-lingual journalist, a novelist, and an award-winning poet. He is a member of the U.K. Chartered Institute of Journalists, and the International Society of Poets, U.S.A. Though the print media is his main interest, for several years, he scripted and performed satirical radio programs, as well as wrote plays for radio.

Sam was formerly an editor at THISDAY newspapers, an authoritative third-world daily first published in collaboration with the Financial Times of London. He later became correspondent for Central Europe and settled in Italy where, in addition to journalism, he began to write poetry.


In 1998, “Anguish & Passion,” his entry poem in the North America Open Poetry Contest, won the Editors’ Choice Award and was published by the National Library of Poetry, USA, in the anthology, Sounds of Silence. Following his nomination for “International Poet of Merit award” (which he won in 2002), his second contest poem, "Lonely Hearts" was published in the follow-up anthology, Measures of the Heart. 


In October 2014, Melange Books, LLC published Sam's Take Back the Memory, a much praised contemporary women's fiction, awarded a 5-star medal by Readers' Favorite. And on Valentine's Day 2015, Sam's book of romantic poetry, Flashes of Emotion, was released. 


1998: Winner of the EDITORS’ CHOICE AWARD in the North America Open Poetry Contest, organized by The National Library of Poetry, U.S.A.

2002: Winner of the INTERNATIONAL POET OF MERIT AWARD given by the International Society of Poets.

2007: Crowned WRITER OF THE MONTH (for the month of September) by the team of Literary Agents Showcase for the manuscript of his new novel ANNABELLA.
