Penguin Prize for African Writing
I have shared this info in the Yahoo group but for some reason failed to share it here. I apologise for this oversight.
Penguin South Africa is holding a writing competition for African writers. The Penguin Prize for African Writing is open to previously unpublished full-length works (60K-100K words) in two categoires: adult fiction and non-fiction.
The prize in each category will be R50 000 (approx. $ 5,000) and a publishing contract with Penguin Books South Africa, with worldwide distribution via Penguin Group companies.
The deadline for submissions for both categories is 30th of January, 2010. The shortlist will be announced in April 2010 and the final prizes will be awarded in September 2010.
Best of all, there is no entry fee!
