Calling young writers

IF you’re in high school, love writing stories and would like to showcase your talent, then you should enter

the 19th “Time of the Writer” competition this year.

Hosted by the Centre for Creative Arts, University of KwaZulu-Natal, the competition invites South African high school pupils to submit their short stories for the annual competition by Friday, 26 February.

There is no particular topic for the short stories and they can be written in English or Zulu. Illegible entries will not be considered, typed entries are preferred. The maximum length is five pages, all of which must be numbered.

The aim of the competition is to encourage creative expression in all South African high-school pupils with the hope of the country’s future writers being revealed at the same time.

Winners will be awarded cash prizes, book vouchers and complimentary tickets to the festival.

Time of the Writer takes place from 14-19 March.

Some of the best authors, publishers and editors from around the world, will be at the festival.

The Time of the Writer also organises a range of free, daily activities including an educational and entertaining programme of workshops, reading sessions and panel discussions.
