The First Annual Scribes’ Prize
Are you a closet poet?
Hiding your light under a bushel?
Do you sometimes wonder what would happen if someone read your poem and gave it the recognition it deserves?
Would you like that to happen?
Here’s your chance. The first Annual Scribes’ Prize will be announced in September 2009. You could be the winner, but not if your poem is still hidden in your notebook. Why not submit a poem or two to the Scribes and see what happens. If you do that before 27th of March, you have the chance to:
Have your poem judged by 3 distinguished Nigerian academics
Win a cash prize
Even if you’re not one of the winners, yours could still be one of the 300 poems published in the first Scribes’ Prize anthology
Attend a high profile award ceremony
To enter, you have to be
A Nigerian, whether living in Nigeria or abroad
Between 11 and 40
