OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature, 2012


Caribbean writing gets another boost with the second OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Literature, which will reward the best Caribbean book published this year with a US$10,000 prize. Entries were opened on September 16, and the 2012 prize will be announced in April next year at the Bocas Lit Fest, T&T’s annual literary festival. The best book is chosen from the winner in each of three categories—non-fiction, fiction and poetry. Published writers who are Caribbean by birth or citizenship, living and working anywhere in the world, are eligible for the prize, which in 2011, its inaugural year, attracted 60 entries from more than a dozen countries.
