Penguin Prize for African Writing: Update

Just a quick update for anyone who entered the Penguin Prize for African Writing competition. For those who read the announcement (see below), you’d remember the shortlist was supposed to be announced in April (last month).

It wasn’t

Here’s why.

The competition recorded a whopping 250 entries for fiction and 50 for non-fiction! In light of this larger-than-anticipated response, the assessment period was extended. So, instead of April, the shortlist will be announced in June, 2010. Final prizes are still scheduled for September, 2010.

Mark your calendars.
