Stories Handed Down is the theme of the Friends of Antigua Public Library’s annual story contest.
In a nutshell, it’s a short story and visual arts competition open to Antiguan students enrolled in forms 1 thru 5. To participate you must have a valid library card and will need to upload the stories before October 22nd.
In many ways, it’s an oral history project as much as it’s a short story/visual arts project as it requires participants to interview an elder. Samples of last year’s winning entries can be found among the other writings on the FOAPL’s Collecting Memories site.
