The Committee for Relevant Art, CORA, promoters of the yearly Lagos Book & Art Festival (LABAF), has called for entries for the 2023 edition of the annual Ken Saro-Wiwa Prize For Book Review.
It is dedicated to the celebration of the life and career of the famous writer and environmentalist Ken Saro-Wiwa, who the Nigeria State killed on 10 November 1995.
The Prize encourages reading and engagement of the published text, which is in tandem with the core objective of the CORA and its prime project, the LABAF.
The project is designed to further a vital aim of the CORA and LABAF— deepening the culture of reading and engagement of content of literary works, particularly fiction, drama, poetry and non-fiction, all the genres where the late author Ken Saro-Wiwa excelled in his illustrious writing career.
A release from the Programme Directorate of the festival highlighted the features and conditions for the Prize on Thursday.
Entries should be a maximum of 1500 words and a minimum of 800 words
The competition is open to only those aged 18-25 years.
