Champu or Champu-Kavya (Devanagari: चम्पु-काव्य) is a genre in Indian Literature originated from Sanskrit. It consists of a mixture of prose (Gadya-Kavya) and poetry passages (Padya-Kavya), with verses interspersed among prose sections.

Traditionally Telugu poets have used the champu way of rendering poetry. Krishnamaacharya carried this tradition of Champu Marga step further by putting his writings mainly in devotional prose called Vachana.

Oriya literature is also replete with champu style poetry.kabi surya Baladev Rath,Banamali das, Dinakrushna Das are some of the most famous poets who wrote Champus.
