Tiah gave me a heads-up about Short Story Day South, a "celebration of prose’s short-yet-perfectly-crafted form."
According to the organisers, "Short Story Day South is a participation driven initiative and will culminate of a series of events all over Southern Africa, offering a variety of stories, old and new, to be read, listened to and enjoyed."
For more information about the series of events, check out the web site.
Tiah is also going to speak/read at one of the events in Mossel Bay. If you're in her neck of the woods, go and listen and support her and her fellow-writers/speakers?
You can also participate in the event by writing a story in one post on the Short Story Day South's Facebook wall. As you know, you will be restricted to 420 characters. The author of the winning short story writer gets R1000 cash prize + a critique. Click here for more information on the competition.
