Who are We?
The Quramo Writers’ Prize is a one-of-a-kind writing competition and award organised by Quramo Publishing Limited. We are an independent publishing company committed to producing the highest quality content for our various audiences. Our company’s portfolio includes Q Books, QLife, Mango Books, The Quramo Report and CLRN Direct; with more imprints to come.
We believe that everyone has a story inside them, unique to them, only possibly told by them. Quramo Publishing Limited wants to encourage the inclination, the habit, the discipline and the art of telling these stories. They are important because of our collective identity, the sense of history they convey, because our stories are who we are.
The Prize calls for writers to submit unpublished work of fiction and nonfiction, and is open in two categories: a general prize and an under 16 prize. There will be one winner in each category. The award[s] consist of a cash prize, a publishing contract and more
Participants can submit their work to our website by filling in the application form and uploading their submissions. The Quramo Writers’ Prize has a minimum word count of 5, 000 words, the under 16 prize has an upper limit of 3,000 words.
Alternatively, manuscripts are accepted via post/email to the addresses provided.
