CBC Literary Awards are now taking submissions, and according to the website this evening, you have 49 days left to submit.
This means the deadline is November 1, 2010. More details can be found at the site HERE: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/literaryawards/, and even if you don't plan to submit, it's well worth a good look around. There are tips for writers, links to other writing organizations, events and festivals [including our conference], and even a chance to have your writing workshopped by professionals before you enter.
You can follow the CBC Literary Awards on Facebook and twitter...well, heck, let's hear it from the folks behind the awards themselves:
A message from the CBC LITERARY AWARDS
Less than 2 months left until the deadline for this year’s competition!
Greetings writers!! It’s that time of the year again. Time to compose or polish off those works destined for this year’s CBC Literary Awards competition. The Awards Team is anxiously awaiting your original and unpublished works (short story, poetry, and creative non-fiction) by November 1, 2010.
Like us on Facebook!
The CBC Literary Awards are Canada’s only literary competition celebrating original, unpublished works in both official languages. There is a first prize of $6,000 and a second prize of $4,000 in all 3 categories courtesy of the Canada Council for the Arts. In addition, the winning texts are published in Air Canada’s enRoute magazine and on our website, and the authors and their winning entries will get exposure on the CBC.
Visit our new website (www.cbc.ca/literaryawards) and get inspired! There you find regularly updated writing tips from the pros, as well as interviews with former winners and jurors. You can also read last year’s winning entries and find resources in your province that can help you with your writing. We hope to make our website a wonderful resource and place to connect with other participants. So be sure to bookmark the page and check back often!
We look forward to receiving your submissions!
The Awards Team
So...what are you waiting for? Check it out!
