Submit for the 2019 Sillerman First Book Prize for African Poets



Deadline: December 1, 2018

In partnership with Prairie Schooner and the University of Nebraska Press, we are pleased to receive submissions to the Sillerman First Book Prize for African Poets. This call remains open through December 1, 2018. 

There is no fee to enter, and winners receive $1,000 US and publication through the University of Nebraska Press and Amalion Press in Senegal. The contest is open to African writers who have not yet published a book-length poetry collection. (An African writer is taken as someone who was born in Africa, who is a national or resident of an African country, or whose parents are African.)
