Call goes out to Commonwealth writers
Location : United Kingdom
Posted : Tue 13 November 2012 : 9:00:00 AM

The Commonwealth Foundation is inviting authors to enter the 2013 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize. The competition is divided into two categories: the Commonwealth Book Prize and the Commonwealth Short Story Prize. The aim of both is to encourage and reward new Commonwealth fiction and ensure that works of merit reach a readership beyond the author’s country of origin. The competition seeks to promote new voices and reward achievement while encouraging wider readership and greater literacy.

Caribbean writers have been well represented among the winners since the prizes were established in 1987. Jamaicans secured both prizes in 2012 and other past winners have included Earl Lovelace and V.S. Naipaul, in addition to many previously unknown first-time writers.

The closing dates are 4th December for the Short Story Prize and 18th December for the Book Prize. Further details can be found at www.open4business.info.
