SprinNG is a Literary movement and Society for the Promotion, Revitalization, and Improvement of New Nigerian Generations in Writing and Literature.
… and they are looking for YOU.
SprinNG intends to encourage and equip developing Nigerian writers. However, in doing so, through submissions for publications and contests, as well as participation in their writing fellowship, they’ve observed a lack of female involvement and visibility.
The SprinNG Women Author’s Prize (#SWAPng) is one way they’re hoping to change that narrative.
Henceforth, annually, SWAPng will select a Nigerian Female Author – someone who has published a full-length book in print and invest N100,000 in purchasing, distributing, and marketing copies of their book Nation-wide through our sister literary websites and events whom we collaborate with.
In their own words:
“We are simply looking for female Nigerian authors who have published excellent books that deserve to be promoted and supported. Only one Nigerian female author will be selected annually for this prize. However, we will use the opportunity to promote other select authors through interviews, book reviews, newsletter promotions, and collaborations to increase their visibility in the Nigerian literary sphere.”
Application & FAQs
The online portal to apply for the SprinNG Women Author’s Prize will open annually in July and close in September – the link will be published on their page. The judges of the SprinNG Women Author’s Prize will be announced in October once the application closes.
A self-nomination process is required, meaning that prospective applicants will complete the application and nominate themselves. The author will only be able to submit one book for the nomination, and it can be of any genre and theme, self-published or released by a publisher in any year. There is no age or region eligibility required. The book nominated must be available for purchase in Nigeria
