Rwandan storytellers sought by Huza Press

HuzaPressAre you a Rwandan? Do you love telling stories? Are you pretty? If the answer to the first two is yes, then Huza press is looking for you. If the answer to the last one is yes I might be looking for you when I come to Rwanda later this year.

Huza Press is looking for short stories, all unpublished work, that will end up in an anthology that comes out later in the year. The best story will get a cash reward of US$1,000 and the best ten will be mentored by some of the best writers on the continent. All of them will participate in regional literary festivals, think Writivism, Storymoja et al.

If this is the kind of thing that rocks your boat, after all what strange person doesn’t want to be mentored by some of the coolest writers around, then I suggest that you contact Huza Press. You can also click on the image on the right. Good luck.

P.S. The deadline for this opportunity is July 10. Chop chop.
