No entry fee! Cash prizes to be won!
Each summer we hold two contests, which are open to Canadian residents and citizens of all ages. This year we have added a separate division for young writers.
Over $2500 will be awarded in cash and other prizes.
There is no entry fee and no obligation to purchase anything.
As well as the opportunity to win cash prizes, there will be ten honourable mentions in each contest and the top third (33%) or less of all entries received will be published in an inexpensive, keepsake, soft-cover collection to be released in early December. All participants will receive a small gift!
Entries must be post-marked by July 31st, 2014, or faxes and e-mails can be sent until August 10th, 2014.
