Writers Space Africa – Nigeria selects entries for its maiden anthology themed “Rebirth.” The list was announced on their website.

Writer’s Space Africa – Nigeria (WSA-N) is the Nigerian franchise of Writer’s Space Africa, an international literary magazine published by African Writers Development Trust.

Earlier in the year, the organization sent out a call for submission asking writers to submit stories inspired by the theme of rebirth. The list of13 was selected from dozens of entries from across Nigeria by an editorial panel led by British Council-Lancaster fellow Steve Ogah.

The stories will be published as an e-book by a soon-to-be announced publisher. Congrats to all the writers!
