ANN:The 2021 Toyin Falola Prize Call for Submission

ANNOUNCING THE 2021 TOYIN FALOLA PRIZE CALL FOR SUBMISSION

 

Now in its second year, the Toyin Falola Prize is inviting young African writers to reach to the core of Africa to make, re-make, affirm, and re-affirm the African (hi)story creatively. The short story must be anchored on Africanfuturism: we look toward stories speculating and extrapolating African past, present, and future. We are particularly concerned with how African futures can be creatively (re)imagined.
