Hollick Caribbean Prize
A new annual literature prize has been announced for emerging Caribbean writers. The Hollick Arvon Caribbean Writers Prize is an open competition for emerging writers who are living in the Anglophone region of the Caribbean and writing in English.
The Prize, worth a total value of £10,000, will allow a writer to devote time to advancing a work in progress, and includes a year’s mentoring by an established author, and travel to the United Kingdom to attend a one-week intensive Arvon creative writing course of their choice. The winning writer will also have three days in London to network with literary professionals, hosted by Arvon, in association with Free Word Centre and agents Rogers, Coleridge & White.
The Hollick Arvon Caribbean Writers Prize will be offered annually, initially for the next three years and across three literary genres – in year one fiction, year two non-fiction and in year three poetry.
