Announcing the PEN South Africa Student Writing Prize Winner
15 Jun 2016
PEN South Africa is very excited to announce the winner of the PEN SA Student Writing Prize. We ran this competition because we believe in the power of writing to effect change and inform the way we see the world and ourselves. We also believe in the talent and power of young South African writers. As PEN SA President Margie Orford said when the shortlist was announced, “These clear and welcome and articulate new writers distil and give form to the student movement that is changing and shaping a generation.”
