I encourage interested parties to submit an entry to this contest. I was published in 2011 through this contest, out of over 5,000 entries I was one of 250 that was published.

There is no entry fee, you're sent a small gift (usually a bookmark) for participating, retain your copyright without restriction, and your piece is registered in the Canadian National Archives. It's worth the fun, and quite a challenge for short prose.

Good luck, let me know if you enter a piece!

Geez, I only write when I get paid.

I am a snob like that. Wink

I'm good enough to get into these contests, not good enough to ever do it professionally, this I know.

Also remember that Harry Potter was turned down by 9 publishers before being accepted.

Watership Down was declined by 13.

Even Lord of the Rings was turned down by one or two, and this after The Hobbit had already been published and successful.

I need to start one before I can finish it. The dreaded procrastination.
