Geist and The Tyee team up on
postcard story contest

Small is indeed beautiful, at least when it comes to the Geist Literal Literary Postcard Story Contest, self-described as "the writing contest whose name is almost as long as the entries!"

The 4th annual contest, co-sponsored by The Tyee, is underway now, with a deadline of December 1 to write a fiction or non-fiction story of no more than 500 words. Details on how to enter can be found here.

The stories must somehow relate to the image on the card, however tangentially.

First prize is $250; second $150; third $100 (more than one prize may be awarded in each category) and there are "swell Geist gifts" for honourable mentions.

The entry fee is $20 for the first entry (includes 1-year Geist subscription or subscription extension), $5 for each additional entry.

Winning entries will be published in Geist and at Selected stories will be posted at Honourable mentions will be published at
