It is that time of the year again, for a writer to begin the journey to becoming a published author.
Quramo Punishing is accepting entries for the 5th edition of the annual Quramo Writers’ Prize (QWP) from Monday, 15 February 2021. The submission deadline is Friday, 30 April 2021.
Created in 2017 as an avenue for fresh writers to showcase their manuscripts to the global literary community, and contribute their works to the canonisation of African literature, QWP celebrates unpublished writers who are working every day to hone their craft and record our continent’s original stories.
The prize aims to encourage and stimulate a new community of talented writers, providing an opportunity for otherwise unexposed talent to achieve publishing recognition and encouragement.
The winner of the Quramo Writers’ Prize 2021 will receive one million naira (₦1,000,000) and a Development Publishing deal for their manuscript. The runner-up, or a selected finalist, is also liable to receive a Development Publishing deal for their manuscript. All Finalists will participate in a series of writing development programmes curated by Quramo Publishing.
