About this opportunity

The Adinkra Poetry Prize invites poetry submissions for 2024. As we approach the upcoming election year, The Adinkra Poetry Prize invites you to offer words that surprise, excite, frustrate, and incite change. We are looking for poetry that serves as a song for change, a chant, a prayer, a potential new national anthem, or guidelines to hold us accountable to our nation and ourselves, exploring the complexities of our love or criticism for our relationship with our beloved nation Ghana.


Winners in each category receive $200 USD. Selected submissions will be considered for publication in a digital anthology. Selected spoken word pieces will be asked to transcribe their work for publication


Submissions are open to writers aged 18+ who are Ghanaian citizens and currently live in Ghana.
