Never-before-published writers have until February 15th to enter and win free registration to Canada's largest Christian Writers' Conference!
BRANTFORD, ONTARIO – All never-before-published Canadian Christian writers – including teenagers and young adults – are invited to enter The Word Guild's "Fresh Ink" Novice Writing Contest.
Contestants may send in their fiction or nonfiction short story, article, or poetry on this year's theme, "A New Creation." Submissions may not exceed 1,500 words. Independent judges who are experienced writers and editors will evaluate the entries and provide helpful feedback.
This contest is designed to encourage and recognize new and aspiring writers. For the purposes of this competition, "unpublished" means the writer has never been paid for something he or she has written.
Prizes will be awarded in two age categories:
- Teenagers: 14 to 19
- Adults: 20 and up
First-prize winners in each category will receive free registration to Canada's largest Christian writing conference, Write Canada, June 12 – 14, 2014 – a value of more than $400.
If winner is not able to attend Write Canada, the free registration can be used at any one-day conference held by The Word Guild, including Write Vancouver, or membership in The Word Guild – to a value of $400.
Second prize: A $100 gift certificate for The Word Guild, which may be used for Write Canada conference registration, membership in The Word Guild, or any of our one-day conferences.
Entries must be received by February 15, 2014.
