True Stories of KZN 2017
THE Witness True Stories of KZN, now in its 19th year, officially opens today.
Following on from last year’s collection of thoughtprovoking stories that often made us laugh out loud or moved us to tears, we are looking forward to more true tales that prove KZN is unique, more special and infinitely more interesting than the rest of South Africa.
All stories must be true and have a strong link to KwaZuluNatal.
There are four categories: Open, with a prize of R12 000 for stories of 1 500 words or fewer; Snapshot, Opinion and Schools, which all have a prize of R4 000 each and are for stories that are 800 words or under.
The closing date for entries is 3 pm on August 4.
So fire up those computers, dig out those memories, warm up those fingers and start writing.
• State clearly which category you are entering. • Stories may be submitted via email or post.
Send your entries to: The Witness, True Stories of KZN Competition, P.O. Box 362, Pietermaritzburg, 3200, or email firstname.lastname@example.org quoting “True Story competition” in the subject line. • Do not enclose visuals. • Please include your contact details in any email attachment and not just in the message field. • Be sure of your entry before you send it — “improved” versions won’t be accepted.
