Bocas Lit Fest

Only four days left to submit entries for the 2014 Hollick Arvon Caribbean Writers Prize!

The deadline for submissions is 30 September 2013.

The 2014 Prize, worth £10,000, will allow an emerging writer living and working in the Caribbean to devote time to advancing or finishing a work of literary non-fiction. The inaugural Prize, which was for fiction, received over sixty entries from writers across the Caribbean.

Previous entrants are welcome to enter again in the non-fiction category.

The Hollick Arvon Prize will be judged by a panel comprising representatives of the Hollick Family Charitable Trust and the Arvon Foundation, an agent from the Rogers, Coleridge & White literary agency, and two representatives of the NGC Bocas Lit Fest.
