Celebrating East African Writing!
As promised here is this month’s winning short story:
Written in Song and Blood: A lone man climbed a mountain. His palms were rubbed raw against the rocks and the wind beat against him mercilessly sending the tail of his ripped shirt flapping behind him.
1 point for half the title.
1 point for being brave enough to veer from the implied topic of love & romance but still being able to keep me reading to the end.
1 point for self-editing and good grammar.
5 points for vivid description and active writing.
Kevin Rigathi Gachagua, please contact for me for information on how to claim your prize.
Just a Reminder:
An idea for your March Writing. Someone posted on a social media status recently: “I want us to be done with the vote so we can get back to living.” If you were to write a short story, how would you represent the ‘living’?
Send in your short story to email@example.com. Deadline is March 15, 2013. Subject of Email Submission: Living & The Book.
Your Short Story should have an appended Nota Bene stating the title of a book that has impacted your recent living and a short review – not more than 400 words – of the book.
Prize: Kshs 1000/- in airtime and a Storymoja book.
