FANCY yourself a short, or very short story writer?
The Herald is inviting you to pen a short story of no more than 100 words on any subject matter for the rest of us to enjoy during the festive season.
The setting should be either the Eastern or Southern Cape, and the story should have a beginning, a middle and a conclusion – however cryptic or conventional that may be.
A panel of judges will select five winners who will receive book hampers and whose stories will be published in The Herald on Christmas Eve.
You may use your own name or a pseudonym, but please include your name and a contact number in your e-mail. E-mail your story by Monday, December 3 to firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate "short story” as the subject line.
