KZN Literary Tourism author, Andrew Miller, has been nominated for the Etisalat Prize for Literature for his novel, Dub Steps. Dub Steps is published by Jacana Media. The book has received critical praise and a slew of accolades. In 2015, Dub Steps secured Miller the Dinaane Debut Fiction Award (previously the EU Literary Award) and it was also longlisted for the 2016 Sunday Times Barry Ronge Fiction Prize. You can learn more about Miller and read an extract from the novel here.
The Etisalat Prize for Literature celebrates new writers of African citizenship whose first fiction book (over 30,000 words) was published in the last twenty four (24) months. Authors and their publishers can be based anywhere in the world. One of the most coveted aspects of the prize is the prize money which the winner will receive - a whopping £15,000.

The shortlist of three authors will be announced in December. We wish Miller the best of luck and hope he will succeed in joining the legion of past winners like Fiston Mwanza Mujila and Songeziwe Mahlangu.
