CHOICE WORKS

Volume Five September 2001

The Canadian Writer's Journal has doubled the chances of aspiring short fiction writers to see their work in print and win money. With two contest deadlines a year (March 31st and September 30th) the Short Fiction Contest continues to provide a venue for mainstream short fiction writing. We weren't sure if there would be enough interest for two competitions a year, but the 96 entries we recieved proved otherwise.

Entries are numbered upon arrival, and the identities of the authors are unknown until the judging decisions have been made. Then, and only then, are the authors' names matched back to their works. All place winners and Honourable Mentions receive a One Year subscription to the Canadian Writer's Journal (valued at $24.08). In addition to appearing in the regular issues of the Canadian Writer's Journal, the winning fiction pieces from each contest are collected into a chapbook entitled Choice Works which is available separately. Choice Works $5.95 CDN | $5.00 U.S. ($9.00 shipping and taxes included) This copy of Choice Works is Volume 5 and available in December 2001. All winners will receive a copy.
