Glenna Luschei Prize For African Poetry


The Glenna Luschei Prize for African Poetry, under the auspices of the African Poetry Book Fund and in partnership with the literary journal, Prairie Schooner, is an annual award of USD $1,000.

 Established in 2015 and named for the literary philanthropist Glenna Luschei, this Pan African Poetry Prize is the only one of its kind in the world and aims to honor and promote African poetry written in English or in translation and to recognize a significant book published each year by an African poet. 


Each year, a significant African writer judges the contest. Open annually from May to October to submissions from authors and publishers.

 Winner will be announced in early January of the following year.

The Luschei Prize for African Poetry is open to any book of original poetry, in English, published during the previous calendar year in a standard edition of a full-length collection of poetry written by any African writer. 

Books must be submitted in the year after their publication. (For example, books published in 2020 may be submitted for consideration between May 1st and October 31st, 2021).
