I just want to let you know about a short story contest I’m facilitating for the Federation of British Columbia Writers.
“What has most surprised me about writing and continues to inspire me is the support between writers. There is room on the shelves for all of us,” BC Short contest judge Eileen Cook said in an interview for the Federation of BC Writers. Submissions are open internationally until June 1st for original, unpublished short stories between 1,200 – 2,000 words. First prize is $350.
Eileen Cook is a multi-published author with novels in eight languages. Her books have been optioned for film and TV. They include With Malice, Remember, Year of Mistaken Discoveries, The Almost Truth, Used to Be and Do or Di. She is a popular speaker at conferences both in the U.S. and in Canada, provides writing/editorial coaching, and is a mentor/instructor for the Simon Fraser University Writer’s Studio, The Write Potential and The Creative Academy.
