ANA announces selected manuscripts for publication
A statement from the Managing Editor, Nigerian Writers Series, Igudia O.E., said a call for submission for the second phase of the series, which was earmarked for the children’s literature genre, was announced on May 25, 2016 with a deadline set for July 17, 2016. The deadline was later extended to August 5, 2016.
The association announced three Series Editors—Prof. Uwemedimo Enobong Iwoketok, Omowunmi Segun and Ikeogu Oke after its National Executive Council meeting in February 2017. A total of thirteen (13) submissions were received after the expiration of the final deadline.
Following an exhaustive assessment of each manuscript received, it is the independent opinion of the Series Editors that the following manuscripts merit consideration for publication in the second phase of Nigerian Writers Series (NWS): The Golden Girl of Luba by Kabir Abdullahi, The Loyal Queen by Chinyere Obi-Obasi, and Oma, the Drummer Queen by Salamatu Sule.
Also, the National Executive Council of ANA has indicated its commitment towards ensuring a qualitative outcome with this second phase of the Nigerian Writers Series project, which will be published by ANA’s subsidiary, NWS Publishers. The final products will be used to power the Association’s proposed nationwide A-Book-A- Child project.
