CHOICE WORKS

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.
