Earl Lovelace Short Fiction Prize announces call for entries
The Earl Lovelace Short Fiction Prize has made a call for entries. Dedicated to celebrating the rich literary heritage of the Caribbean, it was established by renowned Nigerian writer and publisher Onyeka Nwelue to pay homage to the influential Caribbean writer Earl Lovelace.
Administered by @abibimanpublishing, the competition is set to open its doors to aspiring writers on October 15th, 2023, offering a substantial prize of £500 for the winning entry. Writers from around the world are invited to submit their short stories, adhering to one of three compelling themes: “Desperation,” “Consent,” or “Prostitution.”
The submission deadline is scheduled for March 5th, 2024, with the shortlist of seven entries being announced on June 12th. The eagerly anticipated winner of the Earl Lovelace Short Fiction Prize will be unveiled on July 13th, 2024.
One unique aspect of this literary competition is that the works shortlisted for the prize will have the opportunity to be published in an anthology by Abibiman Publishing, granting further recognition to emerging talents.
