Short story competition
July 16, 2012 § Leave a comment
Telegraph-Journal, New Brunswick’s provincial daily newspaper, www.telegraphjournal.com, recently launched a new short fiction prize.
The Salon Fiction Prize, which opened July 7, is for a work of short fiction in English between 1,500-3,000 words. The winning piece will be published in an issue of the Telegraph-Journal’s art and culture section, Salon, and the author will receive a prize of $1,000. The winning piece will be selected by a trio of judges from Atlantic Canadian universities: Thomas Hodd (University of Moncton); Alexander MacLeod (Saint Mary’s University); and Sue Goyette (Dalhousie University).
The contest is open to all residents of Canada. All entries must be unpublished material and not under consideration in any other contest of competition. Entries will not be returned, so keep a copy.
Deadline: Entries must be received by Oct. 1, 2012.
Submissions may be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to 210 Crown Street, Saint John, N.B., E2L 3V8. Entries must include a contact email and telephone number where the author may be contacted. Judging will be blind, so your name should appear on the cover sheet only. Bear in mind that the winning story will need to be suitable for publication in a daily newspaper, so cursing and graphic content should be avoided.
