  • eBook: The Gonjon Pin and Other Stories: The Caine Prize for African Writing 2014

The Prize is awarded for a short story by an African writer published in English (indicative length 3,000 to 10,000 words). An “African writer” is normally taken to mean someone who was born in Africa, or who is a national of an African country, or whose parents are African.

    • Diane Awerbuck (South Africa) “Phosphorescence”

    • Efemia Chela (Ghana/Zambia) “Chicken”

    • Tendai Huchu (Zimbabwe) “The Intervention”

    • Billy Kahora (Kenya) “The Gorilla’s Apprentice”

    • Okwiri Oduor (Kenya) “My Father’s Head”

    Every year, the shortlisted authors will be awarded a £500 prize and published in the annual Caine Prize anthology alongside twelve stories written at the annual workshop held in Africa. The fifteenth winner of the £10,000 Caine Prize will receive their award at a dinner in the Bodleian Library in Oxford on 14 July 2014.

    They will also be given the opportunity to take up a month’s residence at Georgetown University, as a Writer-in-Residence at the Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice, and to take part in the Open Book Festival in Cape Town in September. This is a co-publishing arrangement between the Caine Prize and New Internationalist, Bookworld in Zambia, Cassava Republic in Nigeria, FEMRITE in Uganda, Jacana Media in South Africa, amaBooks in Zimbabwe, Kwani in Kenya and Sub-Saharan Publishers in Ghana.
