KANAC Creative Writing Competition


KANAC is a consortium of academic Professors and different professionals from various fields of life. The sole commitment of this team of experts is to assist burgeoning researchers, creative writers and scholars to achieve the best in their diverse writing quests or researches.

About the Competition

The annual international competition in Creative writing is instituted by KANAC as a way of harnessing and utilizing the human creative and imaginative potentials towards solving the myriad problems of human existence. The competition aims at creating healthy fora for the synergy of ideas, craftmanship and artistry which could be channeled towards constructively solving many challenges of our time. The competition also affords KANAC the opportunity of discovering and nurturing new talents in the creative writing industry.

The team of experts at KANAC believe that despite the seeming differences in the formats for writing Poetry, Drama and Prose fiction, there exists a nexus, an underlying similarity in the expression of the creative enterprise which they all share. This underlying similarity therefore, makes it possible for the best expression of a particular thematic thrust, as well as great utilization of artistry and craftmanship within a specific genre, to emerge as the overall winner in a competition. Each year therefore, the members of the KANAC board will propose a theme, which will be used for that year’s competition.


This competition is open to anyone, above 18 years of age, that is interested in the art of creative writing, irrespective of citizenship or race.
