James Currey Prize For African Literature 2022



Submission of entries for the 2022 James Currey Prize for African Literature is now open.


The founder and director of the prize, Onyeka Nwelue, also announced the jury on the 15th of October, 2021 from his Oxford base, where he is currently an Academic Visitor at the African Studies Centre at University of Oxford.


Nwelue said: “As we announce the jury and calls for submission for next year’s prize, we are delighted to also announce the James Currey Fellowship, in cooperation with African Studies Centre. We are grateful to University of Oxford for this privilege to partner.”


Ani Kayode Somtochukwu, a Nigerian writer and poet, won the inaugural James Currey Prize for African Literature with his manuscript, And Then He Sang a Lullaby.  He received the cash prize of £1000, an agency representation, a laptop (gifted by the Jury Chair, Sarah Inya-Lawal) and an offer for a book deal.


The James Currey Prize was founded in 2020. According to Onyeka: “The pivot for the James Currey Prize for African Literature, that we instituted in 2020, for an unpublished full-length work of fiction intends to perpetuate the value of the African Writers Series and other such initiatives in contemporary African literature exposure, and distribution.”

b) Entry forms must be submitted by April 1st, 2022 to submission@jamescurreyprize.com
