If you haven’t submitted your entry for the 2015 Short Sharp Stories Award you still have some time – until Sunday, to be precise.
The Short Sharp Stories Award, made possible by the National Arts Festival, is an annual South African short story competition for new fiction, with the winners being published in a themed anthology. Previous themes touched on the blood and guts of crime stories, published as Bloody Satisfied, and modern sex stories, published as Adults Only.
The theme for next year’s anthology is “Incredible Journey“, calling on uniquely South African voices to capture rollercoaster rides of incredible experience, telling tales of travel, change and momentum.
The closing date for submissions is 30 November, 2014. Shortlisted writers will be notified by 31 March, 2015. Have a look at the rules and regulations:
