TellingTales Press Competitions

We understand how challenging it is, especially for a new writer, to get their work out and realize the recognition they deserve. For this reason, TellingTales Press endeavors to hold multiple literary competitions spread out through the year. These competitions serve as talent recruitment and recognition drives. Furthermore, other than offering cash and other prizes, TellingTales Press sponsors the publication of winning entries in anthologies and other publications. This is our small way of promoting authorship in Kenya, particularly for the youth.

So what kind of competitions do we run?

  • Short story writing competitions
  • Poetry competitions
  • Play writing competitions
  • Fiction and non-fiction novellas
