Canadian Writer's Journal

Dedicated apprentice and professional writers used the information they found in Canadian Writer's Journal to acquire the edge they used on their way to publication. Many first-time writers got their start in the Canadian Writer's Journal because we were looking for terrific material, not reputation.This website has many resources for writers and is being continued for that reason.

Test your writing in the outside world.

Link to the 2021 edition of the Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar

The Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar 2021 will list Canadian writing contests and book awards for the year 2021 arranged by deadline date. If you think that you'd ever have time to write and still know where to find all this information, collect it, and organize it, call me. Anyone who says they could compile all of this on their own has never tried to do it. Have a look at the Table of Contents for the 2020 Edition here. The 2020 edition is still available in both e-Pub and Kindle formats as well.

Great gift for the writers on your list. It's the nicest encouragement a writer can receive, aside from an acceptance letter.

It is time to make sure your contest is listed in the 2021 edition. Use the link and forms on this submission page to get the details to us, and we'll try to spread the word. Send the email at any time of year; new information may be listed on the Updates page, so check from time to time. Make this year your writing contest gets noticed.

News and Updates

Due to post-operative illness, coupled with the sheer volume of work, the publishing schedule of the CWJ was too seriously behind to catch up. And it is too well-loved to disappear entirely. We appreciate the heart-felt calls and letters of support. Our main work in book publishing and now our book store has pushed the CWJ aside, and with the price of postage, the CWJ is too expensive a proposition to resurrect as I had hoped. And it's taken quite a lot longer than I thought to realize it. It may be possible that an online version may become available. In the meantime, back issues can be had at our new store front at 50 Silver Street, Cobalt, ON

This website has many important sources for information and will remain online. For new writers in Canada, there are people and organizations out there to help. Our Writers Links page has a fair listing of many of them.

We no longer email notices for the CWJ Newsletter. You can check out our Newsletter online instead, they are archived here for reading at your convenience. The Newsletters for White Mountain Publications are also archived, and are much more current.
