Principle

The Association of Caribbean Writers, whose first Congress in November 2008 led to the creation of a major literary prize, was established under the aegis of the Regional Council of Guadeloupe, on the initiative of its President, Victorin LUREL, parliamentary representative for Guadeloupe.

The first edition of this Grand Prix was awarded at the second Congress in April 2011, under the provisional name of “Grand Prix littéraire caribéen of the Regional Council of Guadeloupe”.

This first edition was conceived as a precursor to the Grand Prix littéraire of the Association of Caribbean Writers, which was announced at the third Congress in 2013.

At that time, the “Grand Prix littéraire caribéen of the Regional Council of Guadeloupe” became the “Grand Prix littéraire of the Association of Caribbean Writers”.
