Writers Space Africa – Ghana (WSA-G) is a national chapter of the international literary collective Writers Space Africa. They are a “nonprofit organization whose vision is to provide an equal learning and training ground for Ghanaian writers.”
Their vision include shaping Ghanaian writers for national and international recognition, promotion and preservation of indigenous cultural practices through writing, and inculcating the habit of continuous writing in writers. Their activities range from book discussions to quarterly writers’ workshops and literary quizzes, among others.
In line with their founding objectives, WSA-G recently unveiled a new literary magazine known as Awens3m. The magazine intends to amplify the voices of Ghanaian writers by curating literature from Ghanaian writers for international readership. Their inaugural issue is available for download here.
They are now accepting submissions for the second issue. Writers are invited to submit works on any theme of nonfiction (1,200 words max), flash fiction (300 words max), poetry (one poem, a maximum of 24 lines), children’s literature (700 words max) and short stories (1,500 words max).
