Writers invited to enter Peninsula literary contest

Peninsula writers have until June 30 to explore some new inspirations or dust off an unsold manuscript.

That’s the deadline for submissions to the White Rock and Surrey Writers’ Club’s upcoming literary contest.

Prizes will be awarded in both prose and poetry, with the winning entry in each taking $100, while second-place entries will receive $50.

Prose can be fiction or creative non-fiction (1,000 words maximum). Poetry must be no more than 40 lines. All entries must be original and not previously published for a fee.

They must be typed, double-spaced, with the title and page number on each page.

To avoid disqualification, the author’s name can’t appear on the manuscript itself: title, author’s name and contact information must be provided on a separate page.

Entries (accompanied by a cheque or money order for $10 made payable to White Rock and Surrey Writers’ Club) may be mailed to: White Rock-Surrey Writers’ Club Literary Contest, c/o Semiahmoo Arts, 14600 North Bluff Rd., White Rock, BC V4B 3C9.
