The competition is organized by Wasafiri, a quarterly British literary magazine.
Exceptionally international in scope, the prize supports writers who have not yet published a book-length work, with no limits on age, gender, nationality, or background. The winners of each category will receive a £1,000 cash prize and publication, and will be published in Wasafiri’s print magazine. Shortlisted writers will have their work published on Wasafiri’s website. All fifteen shortlistees and winners will also be offered the Chapter and Verse or Free Reads mentoring scheme in partnership with The Literary Consultancy (dependent on eligibility), and a conversation with Nikesh Shukla of The Good Literary Agency to discuss their career progression.

Every writer recognized by the prize, running since 2009, remains part of the Wasafiri community, and is supported by the magazine as their career grows. Past winners and shortlistees have gone on to score deals with major international publishing houses such as Verso, Peepal Tree Press, and HarperCollins India, and to be shortlisted for and win prizes including the T S Eliot, Ambit Short Fiction, and Bocas Poetry Prize, among very many others.
- The prize is judged in three categories: Fiction, Poetry, and Life Writing.
- Fee is per entry: £10 for a single entry, £16 for a double entry.
The winners of each category will receive a £1,000 cash prize and will be published in Wasafiri’s print magazine. Shortlisted writers will have their work published on Wasafiri’s website.
