Voting ends on 30 November 2022

The Afrika Redefined Indie Book Prize is awarded annually to the best independently published book (fiction, poetry, and creative/narrative non-fiction). The Prize is open to Kenyan independent writers resident in Kenya, on the continent, and in the diaspora.

The Afrika Redefined Indie Book Prize is managed by Mystery Publishers, a Kenyan premier pan-African independent publisher with a bias toward African speculative fiction and genre/pop literature stories.

The Prize aims to recognise quality self-published books with unique and extraordinary stories addressing current and future Africa (Afro-currency and Afro-futurism) for books at most three (3) years old since publication. The winner shall receive Ksh 20,000, scholarships to select creative writing courses at Mystery Creative Writing Training Institue, and a book distribution offer to all Mystery Publishers distribution channels.

The 2022 Prize was only open for Mystery Publishers’ books/authors, and after thoroughly considering the books published since 2019, public voting is now open for the 2022 shortlisted books.

Please, vote for the book with the most compelling story that you feel addresses our current and future Africa.
