We are proud to announce the 10 winners of the Tiny Tales Writing Challenge that took place on FunDza’s WhatsApp portal in June.
The challenge called on entrants to write a mini story (maximum 150 words) starting with the sentence, “My father came home from work to find…”
Entrants were required to use dialogue and descriptive language to bring their short pieces to life.
We received many great entries, making the judging process a difficult one. In the end, the judges settled on 10 winners.
Each of the winners won a little bit of airtime.
Read the winning entries below:
