One of the biggest opportunities to lead for me has been in the literary community. After launching cfwriterz.com, the team has grown in leaps and bounds. We have fought through tough times and realized how important our role is as a platform for emerging African voices.
I would like to invite you my readers to share this opportunity with your network. It’s just a few days till the close of submissions. We look forward to reading all these amazing stories, poems, essays and think-pieces.
CFWriterz announced the call for submissions for the Collins Elesiro Literary Prize & June 2020 Magazine earlier this month. It’s been exciting to receive all the entries so far. The team is anticipating.
We have had such a great reception and support from writing communities across Africa. From Uganda, to Kenya, South Africa to Nigeria.
Unlike our previously themed contests, this edition the contest comes without a theme. We still insist on quality writing and would be opening our platforms to the best of African stories. The magazine is not under any obligation to accept an entry or to announce winners. As much as we try to contact all entrants, only selected winners can be assured of feedback.
