1st Book Competition

Seeing as I'm coordinating SFU's 1st Book Competition this year, I figured I'd better advertise a bit. Here's our promotional copy below. If you're interested (and if you're a Canadian writer who hasn't published a book yet, you should be), check it out. I think it's going to be rather cool. There'll be three winners, and each of them will have their book published in 2011.

The Writer's Studio of the Writing and Publishing Program at Simon Fraser University celebrates its tenth year with the 1st Book Competition, in collaboration with Anvil Press.

We're looking for original, book-length manuscripts (one winner each in the categories of creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry), written in English by emerging Canadian writers who have not previously published a book.

Submissions will be judged anonymously and upon merit alone. Judges' decisions are final. No electronic submissions. Entry fee $55.

Complete entry requirements and entry form available at: Manuscripts must be postmarked before May 31, 2010.
