Winners of Short Story Writing Competition – 2024; A Keekli Trust Venture


Share post:

Come 2024, Keekli Charitable Trust extended a warm invitation to aspiring writers aged under 25, exclusively encompassing students from schools and colleges nationwide for the third pan-India Short Story Writing Competition. An anthology, that will feature the finest 51 narratives, an endeavour, with its grand unveiling slated for the 14th of November. We are finally pleased to announce the top 51 winners who finally made the cut. We wish to congratulate each and every participant for sharing their work with us and we hope you continue to keep writing.

It was a tough decision for the jury members, namely, Ms Namita Lal, Dr Usha Bande, Sh Gupteshwar Upadhyay, Ms Kavita Jhala, Dr Ashutosh Kumar and Dr Mrinal Chatterjee, to assess the stories and select the best for the anthology. The parameters given to them were to score on the basis of vocabulary, creativity and story idea and the guidelines also included that the stories be original. However, in due process a few of the stories were found plagiarized, in form of essays or travelogue which were all disqualified. We hope that you would take this into account when you participate in our competition next year.

Gratitude is extended to our esteemed sponsors, Blue Bells School of Dhalli and our media partner HimachalTonite, whose generous support has made this literary endeavour possible.

Heartiest congratulations to all the winners!
