We have a winner. Or rather two winners. The winners of the inaugural Huza Press short story competition and they are Darla Rudakubana and Daniel Rafiki.

The two winners of the first Rwandan short story competition that we have ever heard of was announced at the Century Park in Nyarutarama on Saturday. The two share the prize money of US$1,000 and therefore each go home with US$500.

Away from the handing out of the accolades, there were workshops that writers who wanted to get ahead taking place on Saturday September 5th at Innovation Village in Kacyiru . The two were on creative writing by Richard Ali and Ciku Kimeria and literary Journalism by Bwesigye Bwa Mwesigire.

With the award being handed out we now look forward to the anthology from the writers.
