Cedric Literary Awards Writing Competition Open for Submissions
May 1, 2017
Building on its BC success, the Cedric Literary Awards writing competition for unpublished writers over the age of 50 is expanding its horizon in 2017 to Alberta, Saskatchewan and the Yukon.

Starting February 1st, writers of fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry are encouraged to submit their manuscripts for the competition’s third year.

The founders of The Cedric Literary Awards believe strongly that encouraging mature emerging writers empowers them to come out of social isolation and gives them a platform to showcase their writing as part of a juried competition.

In addition to awarding $3,000 to the winner in each category, there is also a prize of the same value to a First Nations writer.

The deadline for submissions is May 1st, 2017.
