The SprinNG Women Authors Prize 2021: How To Submit Your Entries

SpringNg Women Authors Prize 2021

The SprinNG Women Authors Prize 2021 is open for entries. Interested Nigerian women authors are to submit a published book in order to contest for the cash prize of 200,000 naira.

The contest is organized by the literary platform, SprinNG, having concluded its annual SprinNG contest few weeks ago.

Why a Women Authors Prize at SprinNG?

According to SprinNG:

While there has been a definite increase in Nigeria's literary engagement within the past decade, especially with the use of technology, there are still improvements to be made. SpringNg intends to encourage and equip developing Nigerian writers. However, in doing so, through submissions for publications and contests, as well as participation in our writing fellowship, we have observed a lack of women involvement and visibility. When we looked outwardly, observing the works of sister Nigerian literary websites and recognitions, we found strong evidence and reports confirming our conclusions.

What They Are Looking For

SprinNG are looking for Nigerian female authors with published books that deserves to be promoted and supported. This with the motive to increase Nigerian authors' visibility in the Nigeria literary sphere.

The winner of the contest will stand a chance to have her published book promoted through interviews, book reviews, newsletter promotions, and collaborations.

 (#SWAPng) ​will select a Nigerian Female Author annually - someone who has published a full-length book in print and invest N200,000 in purchasing, distributing, and marketing print copies of her book nationwide through their independent book reviewers, sister literary websites and events whom they collaborate with.
