The Jacana Literary Foundation, Exclusive Books and the University of Johannesburg Library invite you to the announcement of the results of the 2018 Dinaane Debut Fiction Award.
For the past 14 years, first as the European Union Literary Award and now as the Dinaane Debut Fiction Award, the prize has unearthed great new South African literary talent.
Dinaane aims to promote new southern African fiction that speaks to both a local and international audience. It encourages new writers and new readers by publishing material which would likely otherwise not have been selected – for purely commercial reasons – by local publishers of literature.
The winner is awarded R 35,000 and publication by Jacana Media, and the winning title is supported by Exclusive Books.
Entries were judged blind by a panel comprising David Medalie (chair), Rehana Rossouw and Songeziwe Mahlangu.
In alphabetical order, the following manuscripts have been shortlisted:
- Legacy of a Rain Queen: The Eagle’s Martial by Sophia Tao
- Not to Mention by Vivian de Klerk
- The Mourning Bird by Mubanga Kalimamukwento
