Would you like to be a KATalyst for change too?
You’ve reached the right destination. We’re accepting submissions for our newsletter. Go through the guidelines stated below for detailed criteria on how you can send in your work. You can click on the button below when you are ready to submit.
Every issue will have a specific theme. Any and all pieces contained within the issue will be based on that particular theme.
The theme for the next newsletter will be teased in the previous week’s issue of our newsletter, our website and our social media handles so be on the lookout for that.
The theme for this month is: GRATITUDE
The newsletter is divided into different sections. You can send in your work for as many sections as you like. The guidelines for the same are mentioned below. We request that the contributions you make adhere to these guidelines.
The essence of Knit a Tale where people come together and create a story. Here, you may use our theme as a prompt and take it from there in any way you would like. The story continues with each person from your group taking turns to contribute to the story. This is a unique approach where a person begins the story and the ones that follow can take it forward as they like. It is different from collaborative writing because each person can add their unique elements to the story at any time, this is a way of coming together for a common goal, at the same time respecting each one’s opinions.
To submit a knit, you can have up to 5 people knit a tale with you whilst taking turns. Each person must limit their contribution to 5 sentences at a time, making it a total of not more than 25 sentences.
