African Poetry Prize

From Brunel University, London: “The Prize is open to poets who were born in Africa, or who are nationals of an African country, or whose parents are African. It is for ten poems exactly in order to encourage serious poets. These poems may, however, have already been published. Only poets who have not yet had a full-length poetry book published are eligible. Poets who have self-published poetry books or had chapbooks and pamphlets published are allowed to submit for this prize.” More info is here, but there is more than one set of entry dates on the web page, referring to previous years! I will add correct dates to this post, once I hear back from the university.
