We’re taking a breather on our website over the next two weeks to work on some exciting upcoming projects and nerd out at the Emerging Writers’ Festival. You can catch KYD Editor Alan Vaarwerk and loads of contributors, friends and former staff at the festival – we’d love to see you there! As part of this winter break, we won’t be accepting non-fiction pitches until after 30 June.

We’ll be back on 26 June with some fantastic new reads. But never fear – between now and then we’ll have you covered with a new podcast episode, the KYD Unpublished Manuscript Award shortlist announcement, plus plenty of great reads from the archives!
