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.

For new or experienced writers in Canada, there are people and organizations out there to help. Our Writers Links page has a fair listing of many of them. For our favourite list of writing-related websites, click here to access our Writer's Links page. For information on Canadian writing contests see the Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar.


Test your writing in the outside world.

Canadian Writers Contest CalendarThe Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar lists Canadian writing contests and book awards for the year 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 index listings here. The CWCC is available in both e-Pub and Kindle formats.

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

Make sure your contest is listed in the upcoming 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.

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
