Everyone has a great story to tell! All you have to do is submit your favourite hero-inspired story, and you could be crowned SA’s next Story Bosso. This year’s theme is South African Heroes. Your hero-inspired story should fit into one of these four categories:
- Living legend. This kind of hero is well-known and still alive.
- Past hero. This kind of hero could be featured in a history book or in a tale of the past.
- Fictional hero. This kind of hero is make believe.
- Personal hero. This kind of hero doesn’t need to be well-known, but is a hero to you.

Choose a Hero(This can be a living legend, fictional, personal or someone from the past).
Use interesting and expressive words.
Be confident and articulate when telling your story.
Choose the perfect setting(It can be your home, in outer space, in the jungle, your grandmother’s house. It’s up to you.).
Use facial expressions, like scowling to show how angry a character is.
Choose a happy ending.
Choose a game-changing plot twist(Your Hero transforms into a bird, your Hero uses her magic stick to turn back time. It’s up to you.).
Use expression in your voice that gives different characters, different sounding voices, like a soft voice for a shy character.
Practice, Practise! And remember to have fun with your story.
