This year, SAVH Library is organising a Short Story Writing Competition. We would like to invite all registered clients of SAVH to participate.

Contestants are to write a short original essay of about 3,500 to 4,000 words. The essay must be original though it could be either fictional or biographical. Any persons found suspected of plagiarism by submitting work that is not their own will be summarily disqualified.

Your entry will be judged based on the following criteria:

    • Content
    • Language
    • Style

and merits will be awarded accordingly.

Your script may be handwritten, in digital format, or in Braille. We shall be conducting a sharing session cum workshop on Saturday, 17 June 2017 on essay-writing guidelines. The closing date for submission of all entries is on Friday, 15 September 2017. Do note that you stand to win attractive prizes.

Prizes:
1st: $400
2nd: $300
3rd: $200
4th: $80
5th: $80
