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 Africanfutures can be creatively (re)imagined.
