2014 Young Adult competition shortlist

Short Story Day Africa's 2014 children’s entries have been incredibly strong. What a privilege it will be to take these stories and create an anthology. While our entrants eagerly wait to hear the names of the winners and those being published, we give you our 2014 YA shortlist. The six stories are, in no particular order:

  • "When Hearts Remain True"
  • "Mgeni Kutua"
  • "Patiko and Pajoko"
  • "Phoenix"
  • "Smell of a Fire Lily"
  • "An Unexpected Tale from Tanzania"

Congratulations to all our shortlisted authors. To the rest of our entrants, please hang on for a few more weeks for the full list of winners and to-be-published writers.
