This is power point screened while the audience settled, awaiting the start of the Wadadli Pen awards ceremony – make that the 10 year anniversary Wadadli Pen awards ceremony – Sunday 30th March at the Best of Books, St. Mary’s Street, Antigua. It doesn’t have who won and all that nor all the artist statements as it was done somewhere between the short list and final decision but it does include snippets of all short listed pieces. Hopefully enough of a teaser to encourage you to visit the site, read the stories, and show the young writers and artists some love.
Since posting who won what at the weekend, the top 10 most viewed stories from the 2014 Challenge from most to least, so far, are:
Tied for 6 – or 2 by default
Tied for 7 – or 1 by default
Last Cry by Letisha Carrington Faracho, Escape to Paradise by Damian De Silva, The Big Fight by Paula Russell-Peters, The Day I saved a Friend by Zahra Emanuel, The Knock on My Door by Christopher Gittens
So that’s what’s trending. But I do encourage you to check out all the stories linked here.
