Achmat Dangor Literary Prize 2023 | Contest | Deadline: July 31

Submissions are now open to the Achmat Dangor Literary Prize, a new book prize for black South African authors who are currently working.

Achmat Dangor Literary Prize,


Submissions are now open to the Achmat Dangor Literary Prize, a new book prize for black South African authors who are currently working on their second manuscript. The winner will receive concentrated time and space to complete their manuscript through a writing residency, cash stipend, and final editing of their complete book.

Named in honor of South African author Achmat Dangor, who used his literary works to explore the themes of apartheid, race, and identity, the prize aims to continue his legacy by supporting and promoting South African literature. The project is a collaboration between Achmat Dangor Legacy Project and Leseding La Dinaledi Foundation, led by Thabiso Mahlape, the founder of Blackbird Books.



Mahlape, managing partner of the project, said:

We aim to further support writers by providing them with the necessary tools and space to create. We endeavour to be a platform that is a promoter for exploring new perspectives, initiating conversations, and inspiring the community through literature.

The winner of the book prize will receive a 3-month writing residency at the Nirox Foundation, which includes a luxurious 2-bedroom double-story house with a large double-volume studio, mezzanine workspace, lounge, dining, and entertainment facility, and a separate self-contained 2-bedroom cottage overlooking the water.

The residency also includes fully serviced amenities such as meals and Wi-Fi, as well as access to the Sculpture Park’s 30-hectare garden and on-site restaurant. The prize will also include a R45,000 cash prize and R30,000 worth of editing to help the winner complete their next manuscript and publish their book.

The winner will be announced in October 2023. The writing residency will take place from April to June 2024.

Applicants must submit three chapters of their second manuscript as well as a short bio and a synopsis of said work.

Submit to info@blackbirdbooks.africa.

Deadline: July 31, 2023
