Opportunity from: Wasafiri

Since 2009 the Queen Mary Wasafiri New Writing Prize has awarded some of the most exciting new voices in fiction, life writing, and poetry from around the world. We are pleased to say that this year’s prize is now open for submissions until 5pm BST on 30 June 2023.

Representing more of the globe than any other prize of its kind, the prize supports writers who have not published book-length works, with no limits on age, gender, nationality, or background. The winners of each category will receive a £1,000 cash prize and publication in Wasafiri magazine, and all winners and shortlistees will be published and offered career development support through prize partners The Literary Consultancy and The Good Literary Agency.

Further information and submission guidelines available on the Wasafiri website.
