Nicholas Laughlin informs us that the 2014 Hollick Arvon Caribbean Writers Prize recently opened for entries. The 2014 round of the prize is open to writers of literary non-fiction. The submission deadline is September 30, 2013
The Hollick Arvon Prize is an annual award that allows an emerging Caribbean writer living and working in the Anglophone Caribbean to devote time to advancing or finishing a literary work. It is sponsored by the Hollick Family Charitable Trust and the literary charitable trust Arvon, in association with the Bocas Lit Fest. The organizers anticipate a wide range of entries from across the Caribbean and look forward to discovering many exciting new talents.
The £10,000 prize was awarded for the first time this year. Trinidadian writer Barbara Jenkins was the inaugural winner.
