Spring 2019

The Caine Prize for African Writing is a literature prize awarded to an African writer of a short story published in English. The prize was launched in 2000 to encourage and highlight the richness and diversity of African writing by bringing it to a wider audience internationally. The focus on the short story reflects the contemporary development of the African story-telling tradition. Columbia University will host the 2018 Caine Prize winner, Makena Onjerika, for her short story ‘Fanta Blackcurrant’ published in Wasafiri (2017).
