Writers’ Collective/Winnipeg Free Press Nonfiction & Poetry Contests Are Open!

Entry deadline: November 18, 2013

The Winnipeg Free Press and The Writers’ Collective of Manitoba are proud to announce our Nonfiction and Poetry contests for 2013!

This year’s theme is: an unfamiliar place. An “unfamiliar place” might be a physical landscape, but it could also be a situation or emotional space. We look forward to however you choose to interpret it!

Prizes

Nonfiction: 1st place $500; 2nd place $300; 3rd place $100

All nonfiction winners will be published in the Winnipeg Free Press. The first place winner will also be published in the new Collective Consciousness.

Poetry: 1st place $150, publication in the new Collective Consciousness; 2nd place $100; 3rd place $50

Up to two honourable mentions may be awarded in each category. All winning entries and honourable mentions receive a one-year Writers’ Collective membership.

    I can’t find any link on this page to the “written rules” or the “entry form”. Where are these located and how can I access them?

    Hello!

    I am interested in entering the non-fiction “an unfamiliar place” contest.

    I am also interested in becoming a member and in volunteering with the Writers’ Collective.

    Can you please e-mail me about how to accomplish all of this?

    Thank You!
