Do you need time to finish up a fiction manuscript or to do research for a non-fiction project? Then this award is for you. The Miles Morland Foundation awards African writers a one-year stipend that allows them to make out time to finish a piece of work. Last year, the winners in the fiction category received ₤18,000 while non-fiction writers were awarded £27,000.
One of the 2015 recipients of the award, Akwaeke Emezi, recently announced a book deal with a high-profile publishing house [read here if you missed it]. These kinds of financial awards go a long way towards helping writers make progress with their work.
Deadline is October 31st.
