The Problem House is a community of writers hoping to help other writers. Twice a year, they run a themed contest for new and emerging writers that pays whatever amount of money provided to the eventual winner and also publish same on its website.

Congratulations to David Henson for winning its first contest with his story –  “I-shot-the-sheriff-town.”  And to Jo-ann Bekker, runner-up, for her story “Shards,” and Alex Kadiri, honorable mention, for his story “When You’re Mad.”

A special big-ups to Tochukwu Emmanuel Okafor – “Colour Lessons”  for making the finalists list.
