LOTUS FM SHORT STORIES (article first published : 2007-02-21)

Following Lotus FMs poetry competition, the station now launches into the short story competition, continuing the SABC campaign for all stations to allow listeners to share their ideas and values as well as expose their talent.

There is no theme and the limit is 1,500 words, typed or handwritten in block capitals. Work must be original and unpublished. Closing date for entries is March 9 but send in your entries as soon as possible as there is a winner chosen every week.

Entries should be sent to Lotus FM Express Yourself Competition, Private Bag 1337, Durban, 4000. Or e-mail raeesa@lotusfm.co.za

A panel of independent judges will choose three of the best short stories per week and these will be recorded for broadcast in the Lotus studios. They will be aired daily at 14h30. Listeners will be asked to vote for a weekly winner via sms. At the end of the month, the listeners vote for an overall monthly winner in each category.

At the end of March there will be an event to hand over prizes for the winners as well as the listeners who vote the winners. Prizes for short stories writers are R5,000 for the weekly winner and R10,000 for the overall winner.

The prizes for listeners are R3,000 for the weekly winner and R5,000 for the overall winner.
