CFW Announces Deadline Extension for Collins Elesiro Prize

CFWriterz wishes to announce that the deadline for the Collins Elesiro Literary Prize & June 2020 Magazine has been postponed from 30th April to 10th May. This extension is to afford writers who have experienced difficulties trying to submit their work on the site more time to do so. 

Collins Elesiro Literary Prize

Although we welcome submissions all year round, twice every year we try to reward writers for their work through the Collins Elesiro Literary Prize. This year’s prize comes with N100,000 (One Hundred Thousand Naira) for our top 3 entries and an e-publishing deal. 

Previous years have seen us commit writers to a theme, but this time the prize comes without a theme because we want to allow writers the freedom of imagination to explore African stories without creative restraint. We only ask that you submit your best work to give yourself a good chance. Unfortunately, as much as we try to contact all entrants, only selected winners can be assured of feedback. 

We regret any inconveniences.

About the Author

Jeff Omenyuru

Jeff Ugochukwu Omenyuru was born in a small polyglot town in Bauchi, Nigeria. Growing up, he was fascinated with the mechanisms of difference and how they shape our perceptions and guide us through space, which led him to writing and continues to inform his storytelling. He is also interested in helping writers close the gap between what's on the page and their imagination. Jeff mostly writes early in the morning, then sits with other people's writings through the day, either as a freelance or in-house editor at Itanile Magazine.
