The Sprinng Writing Fellowship 2024

The Sprinng Writing Fellowship (SWF) is an intensive 6-week online mentorship program for developing Nigerian, Ghanaian, Liberian, and South African writers with great potential and willingness to learn. 

This fellowship focuses on 6 genres of literature: Poetry, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Book Review, Play/Drama, and Blogging. During the 6 weeks, mentees will be in contact with their mentors, sending them their works and getting reviews and commentaries. Mentors and mentees will aim to work on at least 1 piece of writing in their select genre per week. The Sprinng Writing Fellowship is only open to writers (18-25) who have not published a book before (eBook/hardcopy).
The medium of communication between the mentors and mentees throughout this program will be via email, phone calls, WhatsApp, and text messages. In addition, all mentees will be provided weekly airtime during the program.

Sprinng is collaborating with Pepper Coast Literary to help enhance the fellowship visibility this year. In the past years, SprinNG has collaborated with the Contemporary Ghanaian Writers Series (CGWS) and Botsotso to spotlight the fellowship's expansion.
