    Er, this is so restrictive? How do writers who do not have a complete work of art participate? How? I understand it’s a good development and all, but if you would please extend the date?

    And there’s the matter of CAC am I supposed to go get registered with the body in order to become a member of NWS? doesn’t sound fair to me.

    Please enlighten me.

    1. @daireenonline This ANA call is to publishers and not writers. When a particular publisher is chosen, THEY will then call for submission of manuscripts from writers.

  3. I just hope the project does not get tainted with nepotism, favouritism and corruption.

  4. Things are getting better…

  5. Nigerian Writers Series is good news. I grew up reading African Writers Series.
