The contest welcomes submissions in three categories: non-fiction, fiction and poetry. Non-fiction and fiction entries can be a maximum of 1,500 words, while poetry has a maximum of one page, single-spaced.

Cash prizes of $150, $100 and $75 are awarded for the top three entries in each category, and three honourable mentions are also named. Winners and honourable mentions will be published in the society’s e-zine, Wordplay at Work.

The contest accepts a maximum of three submissions per person in total (combined in any or all categories).

All submissions are anonymous; send your entry with a cover letter that includes your name, address, email, phone number, category, title and payment option.
