…deadline has passed, and we had a decent response to our very first contest. We’re so excited that so many of you wrote your stories and sent them in to us. The judges have them now, and we’ll be announcing the results here and on our Facebook page on August 31st. Stay tuned!
Aside from the fun and the glory, we have fabulous prizes.
First place winners in each category recieve $50 and publication on the Stories in the North website.
Second place winners will receive $30 and publication on the Storiesin the North website.
Third place winners will receive $20 and publication on the Stories in the North website.
In addition, each winner will receive a copy of a handmade, limited-edition book containing all the winning stories.
Bear in mind that publication on Stories in the North is a paid publication credit, and can be used towards qualifying for grants through the Ontario Arts Council. The Arts Council supports Stories in the North and we’re ever so happy and grateful that they do. Without them, we wouldn’t be able to bring in our guest authors, give workshops, or run writing contests, NaNoWriMo events or Open Mike nights.
If you didn’t have time to get it together for this contest (and really, we know summer is busy, busy, busy!), we’ll be doing it again in 2014. Start thinking about it now!
