The Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar
Dec 24, 2016
This is our fifteenth year doing the Contest Calendar. Can't believe I lived through another one.
Did I mention DONE was my favourite word? The EPub and Kindle formats are now available as well.
We try to post new contests, or changes in deadline dates on the Updates page through the year. The links for contest submission are on the left-hand bar. Second from the top, that's it. Choose the most convenient format, or copy the form into the body of an email and send it to us. Don't wait; we collect information all year round.
The electronic formats have proved popular, and the 2016 edition is still available in both EPub and Kindle formats. The 2017 electronic editions are coming as well. From conversations over the past three years, it seems that the electronic version of the CWCC was portable and not able to be lost on vacation, while the print copy stayed safely at the desk. It was an interesting perspective.
Always check for your contest, make sure it is still operating, and that the deadline is where you thought it would be. Many things change after we go to press. Many of them are not planned. Check again about a month before the deadline to confirm that there haven't been any other changes. And if there are, please send me an email, or a note to let us know. Let us know if you hear of any new opportunities as well. Check the Update page during the year.
Full CONTEST information is in the book. The 2016 Book Awards listings can be obtained directly from the Award sponsors. The advantage for the ebook version is that all the web addresses are hyperlinked so you can tap on them and see for yourself. It's good to know what awards are there and and when their deadlines are. There are an incredible variety of awards. Newest awards we noticed were for blogs, e-zines and graphic novels. Most of them need submissions of your published book from your publisher, not the author. With smaller presses, it may be helpful to gently inquire as to whether your book will be submitted. The sizes of some of those prizes would make it feel more like winning a lottery, but they are given out, and if you qualify, your name should be in the hat. It's good for book sales, and general publicity. And possibly for your pocketbook as well.
Hope you are having a wonderful writing year.
Many thanks for your support, especially during these past two years.
