SLWS announces its award of the 2017 Prize for ACHIEVEMENT, ENGAGEMENT & PROMOTION OF WRITING IN SIERRA LEONE to three young poets who coordinated and edited the anthology of poems, Huemotion, published by SLWS in 2017.

Jazz, the lead editor wrote to SLWS: “After the publication of our first book titled Huemotion which is an anthology of poems, we took on the challenge of advertising our book. One of these methods was the school tour. All went well after we visited 5 schools, all of whom were schools that the book’s poets attended. The team consisted of young writers and young editors.  All of the writers at the point of writing this book were all in school. Going back to their various schools will serve as a motivation to other young talents.”

List of schools in Freetown visited by the young poets:

  • Sierra Leone Grammar School
  • The International School Limited
  • Modern High School
  • Prince Of Wales School
  • Annie Walsh Memorial Secondary School
