Short Story Day Africa announces 2015 anthology judges

A few days ago I spoke about the call out made for the new Short Story Day anthology for 2015 that will focus on Water. More details have emerged about this project which is sponsored by Worldreader, Bookslive.co.za and AllAboutWriting.com

The organisers of the event have now announced the judges for those who submit their work and they are Abubakar Adam Ibrahim Mary Watson and Billy Kahora. They have also given the prizes for the winners for this years edition of the anthology; the winner goes home with R10 000, second gets R2 000 and third gets R1 000. In Kenya shillings thats 80,000, Kshs16,000 and Kshs8,000 by current exchange rates but you can translate it into your own currency.

The prize winners will also win an online creative writing course from All About Writing.

So for those who want in on the action please submit your entry to water@shortstorydayafrica.org by 31 July. You can learn more about the terms and conditions here.

Good luck.
