Entries open for creative writing competition

Entrants are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild to create a scenario where Detective Inkomba solves a mystery of sorts.

Every year, READ Educational Trust encourages young authors to challenge their creativity in the Word Warrior Competition.

This year’s competition continues the focus on the foxy Detective Inkomba, and entrants aged 9 to 16 are required to write fresh, authentic dialogue for a play, a movie or to use in a story.

Entrants are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild to create a scenario where Detective Inkomba solves a mystery of sorts. He could set off on interplanetary travel, engage in covert affairs, local affairs or even a love affair!

The winner walks away with a R1 000 cash prize and books to the value of R5 000 for their school. Entries close on Saturday October 31.
