Her Excellency Samira Bawumia, the Second Lady of the Republic of Ghana has launched the Samira Bawumia Literature Prize to support young Ghanaian writers.
The Samira Bawumia Literature Prize will be an annual literary competition for the best short fiction, poetry and non-fiction prose by young Ghanaians living in Ghana.
According to the Second Lady, the Samira Bawumia Literature Prize is a launchpad for aspiring Ghanaian writers to share their art with the world.
The literary prize also seeks to champion the cause of developing and supporting homebred writing talent, through publishing opportunities, cash prizes, as well as publicity across print, radio and digital channels.
Interested writers can submit their works from April 23, 2020. The deadline for submission, however, is May 8, 2020.
