Signifyin' Guyana Short Story Competition
In order to fund the competition, Signifyin' Guyana has set up an account with ChipIn so that we can all assist with the support of emerging Guyanese writers.As many of the readers of this blog know, I've lived by the motto: It's better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
