"Do you have the write stuff ?"
The Canadian Authors Association, Niagara Branch, is holding its Twelfth annual "Ten Stories High" short story competition - open to all Ontario residents. Stories can be of any genre but must be previously unpublished and between 1,000 and 3,000 words. (No personal essays, memoirs, children's literature or non-fiction please.)
For first Canadian rights, the top ten finalists will have their stories published in an anthology in the fall. The award for first place is $300; second, $200; and third, $100. Winning entries will also receive story evaluations.
Deadline: March 31, 2011. Entry fee: $15 per story. Full details here.
