Non-Fiction Contest: EVENT Journal

I received the following from Event Journal. It may interest some of you.


EVENT, a literary journal showcasing fiction, poetry, creative non-fiction, reviews and notes on writing by new and established writers from Canada and around the world, is currently in its fourth decade of publication. Our Annual Non-Fiction Contest deadline is coming up (April 15, 2014) and we'd like to advertise the contest as widely as possible. We would greatly appreciate your help in listing the information where it would get the most exposure and/or pass it along to individuals who may find it of interest.


EVENT is one of Canada's most prestigious literary journals, and a strong supporter of literary non-fiction. Stories first published in EVENT have won numerous National and Western Magazine Awards, and have been featured in The Journey Prize, Pushcart Prize and Best Canadian Stories anthologies.


Please don't hesitate to contact us should you have any further questions!
