Writers' Ink at Caledon Public Library

Short Prose Competition

“We need writers to record, interpret, and forecast our lives. We need writers to provoke us, entertain us, instruct us. And, while we need writers to develop distinctive individual voices, they often need to speak out as a group in any number of forums. The Writers’ Union of Canada has given writers that collective forum.”
The Writers’ Union of Canada has announced that submissions are being accepted until March 1st for the 22nd Annual Short Prose Competition for Developing Writers which has a $2,500 Prize. The winning entry will be the best Canadian work of up to 2,500 words in the English language, fiction or non-fiction, written by an author not yet published in book format. Entry fee $29 per entry.
