Writers' Federation of New Brunswick Contest Deadline Approaching

"If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to promote your writing, resolve to enter the Writers' Federation of New Brunswick’s 2013 Literary Competition. With over $2,000 in cash prizes to be awarded to top submissions of poetry and prose, the competition has been the launch pad for many published works since WFNB first welcomed entries in 1985.

Awards include: the new Douglas Kyle Memorial Prize for Short Fiction, valued at $500; the Alfred G. Bailey Prize, which awards $400 for the first place poetry manuscript; the Richards Prize, also valued at $400, for the winning fiction manuscript (either a collection of short stories, a short novel, or substantial portion of a longer novel); and the Sheree Fitch Prize for Fiction, which is open to young writers, up to age 18, and worth $100.
The competition is open to WFNB members and residents of New Brunswick. The deadline for entries is February 28, 2013.

Now in its 27th year, WFNB is the only organization that brings together writers in all disciplines and at all levels of development to recognize, encourage and promote New Brunswick writing."
