Do you feel you’ve written the next great Canadian short story, novel, or poem? We have compiled a list of writing contests open to Canadians that include fiction and non-fiction contests, short story contests, and poetry contests. Our listing of writing competitions appear in order of deadline dates and, because there are hundreds upon hundreds of contests, we have separated them by month. Please remember to check out the details for all writing competitions at the websites provided — most sites have additional information, including submission guidelines and rules.
Please note that this is not a comprehensive list of competitions — we can only include those we are aware of.
Have we missed any competitions? Organizations and groups are welcome to send their contest information to us via email at info (at) canadianauthors.org.
