Are You Taking Part In Short Story Day South?

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.

Super idea! I love organic movements because they come from the heart.

I wonder if it's too late for me to get it going on this continent?

@Lori - Could be very stressful to organise the full monty by Wednesday. But a portion of the movement, maybe a short story chain, could be doable? But having read your blog and how hectic you've been, and with the webinar you're doing with Anne Wayman coming up, where will you get the time:-)

LOL! Good question. I guess I don't have to sleep... :)
