Wole Soyinka Prize for Literature… Money, genre for review


Beginning from the 2014 edition, the increasingly popular literary award, Wole Soyinka Prize for Literature in Africa will “rotate the genres” each year, and most likely, increase the monetary worth of the prize.

South African, Sifizo Msobe won the last edition
The organisers, Lumina Foundation has made this known in Lagos, noting that since the award commenced four editions ago, it was logical to acknowledge that the Nobel Laureate’s writing cuts across the genres of prose, essay drama and poetry.

From 2014, “entries will be on a genre for each edition” and the prize money could be reviewed upwardly, the organisers assured.
