Mystery Publishers invites Kenyan writers, readers, book lovers, and the general public to the Afrika Redefined Indie Book Prize award ceremony to award the 2022 winner at Alliance Française de Nairobi.
The Afrika Redefined Indie Book Prize is awarded annually for 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 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 not more than three (3) years old since publication.
