First-prize winners will receive free registration to attend Write! Canada, a value of more than $400. Entries must be received by January 15, 2011.

Contest submissions may be in any writing format, including short stories, poems, scripts, and nonfiction articles. Independent judges who are experienced writers and editors will evaluate the entries and provide helpful feedback.
This contest is designed to encourage and recognize new and aspiring writers. For the purposes of this competition, "unpublished" means you have never been paid for something you have written.
