True Sto­ries of KZN 2017

The Witness - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
