The Skryf Net writing competition encourages young South Africans to write in their own words and language. The competition is hoping to form partnerships with the media (broadcast, print and digital) in making this competition more of a success.
Now in its third year, it is open to primary school learners, aged between 6-13 years. The competition encourages aspirant writers to put pen to paper and relate their stories in Afrikaans, English, Sotho or Zulu. The stories, short or long, will be read and assessed by qualified adjudicators and will be broadcast widely so that they can be readheard by as many citizens as possible.
Judging volunteers sought
The organisers are seeking the assistance of individuals equipped to judge the essays, as well as read the winning entries in a broadcast setting. Skryf Net is particularly keen to receive applications from current or past teachers, postgraduate language students and authors. All judges will be volunteers and will not be paid, but will become active participants in inspiring a new generation of published writers.
