Writing Contest Opens April 1, 2012!

Hi Everyone,

We've decided to try something new this year to celebrate our 20th anniversary, so for the first time ever we are announcing an opening date for our writing contest. This year's contest offers more than $4600 in prize money -- a huge opportunity for you to add to your coffers -- as well as your prestige, if you are one of our winners.

The contest officially opens Sunday, April 1, 2012. No foolin' -- that's when we start taking entries! And the contest closes this year on September 14, 2012 at midnight.

Contest details can be found on the site HERE, but in short, we have four categories: Storyteller's Award, Non-Fiction, Poetry and Writing for Young People. Each entry is $15.

This contest is an important fundraiser for our conference, and every cent of your entry fee goes to supporting our wonderful event. So enter often -- we love to read your work!

Questions? You can email me, your faithful Contest Coordinator, at contest@siwc.ca or kcdyer@siwc.ca. You can send your entries in online, as well, and this year -- you can pay online, too, with our new PayPal button.

So much exciting news! And there's more to come...

We hope you'll join us in celebrating what is really the beginning of our conference season.
