Poetry competition: Brunel International African Poetry Prize

39728b4d-c30f-4dfd-9810-bb1563253603

 

The £3,000 prize is aimed at encouraging new and emerging poets of African origin

The Brunel International African Poetry Prize was set up in 2012 by Bernadine Evaristo, professor of creative writing at Brunel University (pictured). The prize is designed to encourage serious poets, and is given for a set of ten original poems by a poet who has not yet had a full-length book of poetry published.

Individual poems within the set of ten may have been previously published, and writers who have self-published and/or who have had chapbooks and pamphlets published are eligible to submit. All poets entering the competition must have been born in Africa, be nationals of an African country, or have African parents.

Entry is free.

The closing date is 12 December.

For full details see the website.
