EWF Short Story Contest – Deadline nearly here!

The submission deadline is fast approaching for the 2014 EWF Short Story Contest – it’s April 4, April 17 a much earlier deadline than our previous writing competitions – so we encourage local writers to follow the advice of Mary Heaton Vorse, who said:
“The art of writing is the art of applying the seat of the pants to the seat of the chair.”

The link EWF Short Story Contest 2014 will give you all the details, but in brief, here’s what you need to know:

  • Three categories (Adult 20+, Teen 15-19, Youth 14-under)

  • One entry fee (Adults only, $15)

  • Local writers (Wellington, Waterloo, Dufferin, Grey-Bruce, Halton, Hamilton-Wentworth counties/regions) 

  •  Theme: Home (whatever that means to you – a place? a person? the name of your cat…?)

  • And finally - Prizes!
