06 Nov 2018
Deadline: 12 December 2018
Entries are now open for the 2019 Brunel International African Poetry Prize, one of the major poetry prizes for African writers, with a purse of around R45000.
The Brunel International African Poetry Prize is a major annual poetry prize of £3000, aimed at the development, celebration and promotion of poetry from Africa. Now in its sixth year, the Prize is sponsored by Brunel University London and supported by the African Poetry Book Fund
The Prize is open to poets who were born in Africa, or who are nationals of an African country, or whose parents are African. It is for ten poems exactly in order to encourage serious poets. These poems may, however, have already been published. Only poets who have not yet had a full-length poetry book published are eligible. Poets who have self-published poetry books or had chapbooks and pamphlets published are allowed to submit for this prize.
More information, including eligibility requirements and entry information, may be found at the prize’s website.
