Short Story day competition for young writers

Know any budding writers under 18? Short Story Day is running a competition for YA fiction written by teens and the winner gets a Creative Writing Course from SA Writer’s College!

If that’s not incentive enough to get writing, the winner also receives a R500 voucher from Exclusive Books and copies of my books!

Entrants need to write a short story about being Young in the City.

I’m judging and I can’t wait to read the entries!

(Hint, I love imaginative stories with a dark twist but I also value good writing and the ability to tell a good story!)

Competition details here.

Short Story guidelines here.

Short Story Day is also running a competition for young writers under 12 judged by Lauri Kubuitsile.

Better get writing!

Yesterday I interviewed Rachel Zadok, the mastermind behind this year’s Short Story Day for The Event Newspaper. Read all about it here.
