I really like this initiative by Paperight!
They are putting together the first Paperight Young Writers Anthology – high school learners from around South Africa are invited to submit their original short stories, essays, poetry and black-and-white illustrations for inclusion in this collection.
If you are a high school teacher, or know of teenagers who love to write, please make them aware of this. The closing date for entries is Friday, the 8th of March 2013.
Says Arthur Attwell (Founder and CEO of Paperight), “Aspiring young writers in South Africa don’t have nearly enough opportunities to have their work published and their voices heard, or to test the waters for careers in creative and academic writing.”
