Be a "Lit" champion and support your local authors!
The Epigram Books Fiction Prize is growing to be Singapore’s most coveted book prize, with a prize pot of $40,000 to support four novelists in bringing their writing to the masses. We created the Prize in 2015 to nurture Singaporean authors both new and established, with the confidence that one or more of these authors may earn that honour for themselves, and for Singaporean Literature.
The Prize was previously open to Singaporeans, permanent residents or Singapore-born authors only, but for the next edition, we are expanding it to include writers from ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations). We will turn their full-length, original and unpublished novel-length manuscripts written in the English language into novels that we will publish.
