Holiday – December Short Story Call Out

December is a holiday month; kids out of school, December 12, Christmas & Boxing Day, and some workers align their annual leave with December to allow them time to spend with relatives in rural homes. Traveling to ushago used to be a huge thing. It still is for some. But with the evolution of the economy and family set up, December Holidays are not what they were 20 – 25 years ago.

Deadline: December 29th 2014

Selected Stories will be published on 5th January 2015. The story selected for Editor’s Choice wins KES 1000/- Airtime.

Happy Holidays!
