OK, writers, it’s time to stop procrastinating and get writing.
The Royal City Literary Arts Society’s 2020 Write On! Contest is now open.
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.
You can choose to pay by Paypal at www.rclas.com, or you can mail a cheque or money order to Royal City Literary Arts Society, Box 308, 720 Sixth St., New Westminster, V3L 3C5. In both cases, email your entry and cover letter to email@example.com (do not send hard copies of entries in the mail).
The deadline is April 1, and winners will be announced May 15, with a winners’ reading event to be announced.
