Sillerman First Book Prize for African Poets

There is another opportunity to enter a competition for African poets. I assume there are many poets running around with beautiful lines in their heads. Just take your time to set down, or have a second look at what you have written in the past few months. Have another go at the pages and your scribbles, maybe you can improve some lines, divert the stream of words, point into another direction.

Have a look at this page for more information on how to enter the competition.
