The African Speculative Fiction Society’s 2021 Nommo Awards Ceremony will be held this December at DisCon III, the World Science Fiction Convention.
The ASFS is the organization of African writers, artists, editors, and publishers in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and related genres.
The organization says the virtual component of the convention “means greater numbers of African writers can be part of the convention, to take part in panels, give readings and attend events of interest to them all online. Holding the Awards ceremony as part of the convention’s diversity streams will help bring African writing and comics to the attention of the international SFF fan, writing, editing and publishing communities.”
ASFS member voting on the 2021 Nommo Awards shortlist closed August 30.
