Best Nigerian Short Stories Project

Topaz Publishing House proudly announces the commencement of the Best Nigerian Short Stories Project. This will be a platform to annually showcase qualitative short stories from emerging and established Nigerian writers. There will be a periodic call for entries from which the editorial team will make its choice of those good enough to be included in the anthology.

The BNSS anthology will be edited each year by a different set of editors who will be looking for a broad range of voices, viewpoints, experiences and craftsmanship. Stories published in journals or magazines two years before this call are eligible but this should be stated in the submission.

The editors for the maiden edition which will appear under the title, the Best Nigerian Short Stories of 2008, are Bello Sule, Ozioma Izuora, Dul Johnson, Mustapha Mohammed and Tony Oha.
