The Professional Writers Association of Canada (PWAC) has launched two major new writing awards -- one for feature length stories (over 1,200 words) and one for shorter pieces.Deadline for entry is March 19.
“These awards will showcase the excellence of Canadian writers,” said PWAC President Tanya Gulliver. “Our goal is for these awards to eventually become some of Canada’s premier prizes for writing. PWAC is Canada’s largest organization representing freelance writers, and our awards will celebrate that.”Entry requirements are detailed here.
Entries must have been published in a paying Canadian print or web media outlet in 2009. The first prize in each category has a $500 value, including a free PWAC membership for a year (if eligible).
