THANK YOU to all the writers who submitted to Literary Writes 2014. Submissions closed as of Friday, August 15 at midnight. While a blind judging process will be used to determine which entries earn awards, we want to say that every single writer has earned our respect and we sincerely hope going for the prize has been motivational for you.

Stay tuned. Winners will be announced by September 10. Their entries, along with honourable mentions, will be published in the winter edition of WordWorks Magazine, and the authors will be invited to read their material at a Federation of British Columbia Writers Reading and Award event in the fall.

For updates check coming issues of WriteOn, the Federation’s eNewsletter. If you aren’t already receiving it, just submit the simple form in the right sidebar of this page and you will get news from BC’s ‘community of writers’.
