What’s New Wednesday: Looming Contest Deadlines

Just a quick reminder that there’s only one week left to submit to the Canada Writes Creative Non-Fiction Prize. All Canadians are eligible to submit a work of 1200-1500 words, along with a $25 entry fee, for a shot at the $6,000 first prize.

Under-18s have just a week left to submit to the Book Week 2012 Writing Contest for Kids & Teens. Students in grades 4-12 are eligible to submit stories or poems up to 1500 words in length for a shot at the $250 prize. (Smaller prize but hey, there’s no entry fee.)

On another note, thanks to Precious and her Fragments of Life blog followers for including me in Dystopian Domination 2 – it’s great to virtually meet new readers. If you haven’t seen it, check out my interview and enter to win a copy of All Good Children. (Super small prize but no entry free OR writing effort required – awesome!)

    • Thank you, Danielle! That is awesome. I am going to have to do some serious blog perusal to fulfill my obligations, but I will get to that at some point, along with thinking up stuff to share about myself. (In the meantime, if you want to borrow my Richard Sharpe video collection, just say the word.)
