Some TNQ Writing Contests This Spring

Canadian Writers & Writing

The New Quarterly Magazine is promoting three contests that may be of interest to our members and other local authors:–

*The Peter Hinchcliffe Fiction Award, sponsored by the St. Jerome’s University English Department. The $1000 top prize will be awarded for a work of short fiction by a Canadian (citizen or resident) writer who has not yet published a first novel or short story collection. Though there is only one top prize, all submissions will be considered for paid publication ($250) in the magazine.

*The Nick Blatchford Occasional Verse Contest: this contest is for poems written in response to an occasion, personal or public-poems of gratitude or grief, poems that celebrate or berate, poems that make an occasion of something or simply mark one – grand prize of $1,000 to the poem judged most worthy. Another $1,000 in prize money will be distributed as the judges fancy. However the prize money falls, the best  will be published in The New Quarterly at their usual rates

*The Edna Staebler Personal Essay Contest: for essays of any length, on any topic, in which the writer’s personal engagement with the topic provides the frame or through-line. There is no restriction on essay length or subject matter, but the author must be a Canadian citizen or resident. A $1,000 prize for the winning essay; all submissions will be considered for paid publication ($250) in the TNQ magazine.
