Call for nominations for the 2010 MARTY awards!

The MARTY Awards will hand out over $10,000 this year, $1,000 to each emerging and each established artist in their field.  So it's time to nominate whoever you think are the best writers (and other artists) in Mississauga. (People who lived in Mississauga for 10 years or more but who have moved away are also eligible.)  Deadline for nominations is March 31, 2010!

Produced by the Mississauga Arts Council, the MARTYs are Mississauga's premiere arts awards. Categories include Visual Arts, Literary Arts, Media Arts, Performing Arts, Performing Arts Group, Patron of the Arts, and Arts Volunteer of the Year.

Last year, Tanaz Bhathena won the award for best emerging writer. If you've been in a class with Tanaz or have heard her read at CJ's Cafe or at Prana Coffee Bar, you'll know why this award was so well deserved.  This year, let's nominate some more great writers we know.  Full details here.
