The annual Quebec Writing Competition, supported by Maisonneuve and CBC Canada Writes, is accepting submissions for its 2013 awards. Entries may be fiction or non-fiction, previously unpublished, with a maximum of 1200 words. Participation is limited to residents of Quebec. The submission deadline is May 1.
The first-prize winner will receive a cash prize of $1500, have their work published in Maisonneuve and broadcast on CBC Radio’s Cinq à Six; the second-prize winner will receive $1000, have their work published on Maisonneuve‘s website and broadcast on CBC.
There will also be one Readers’s Choice winner who will receive $300 and a broadcast of their work. All three winners will be published in a CBC Canada Writes anthology.
The winners will be announced at the QWF Literary Awards Gala in November, 2013.
