ANA Poetry Prize gets $1,000 endowment
In a message relayed to the Association recently, Senator Shehu Sani expressed his desire to jerk up the prize money which was N100,000 to $1,000 for a poetry collection(Published and unpublished) that evokes or denotes peace, tolerance, social justice and egalitarianism.
By this endowment, the winning work this year 2019 will be rewarded with the sum of $1,000. Recall that the poetry prize has been one of the most rewarded monetarily of ANA prizes over the years when it was endowed by Cadbury for $1,000 and later $2,000 before it was rested in the late 2000s.
By this endowment, the prize will now be known as ANA/Shehu Sani Poetry Prize. The deadline for the submission for any of the ANA literary prizes as earlier advertised is May 31, 2019.
