Deadline: May 31st, 2019

The 2019 Graywolf Press Africa Prize is now open to submissions. The award, launched in 2017 by the publishing house Graywolf Press, with the Nigerian novelist A. Igoni Barrett as judge, recognizes “a first novel manuscript by an African author primarily residing in Africa”—with a $12,000 advance, publication in the US and Italy by Graywolf Press, and a book marketing push in Africa. Its inaugural winner, in 2018, was Kenya’s Khadija Abdalla Bajaber, for her manuscript The House of Rust, a magical realist story described as “sumptuous” and “bold.”
