Short Fiction Contest 2010

The Nanaimo Arts Council is pleased to announce the launch of the 6th annual Nanaimo Short Fiction Contest. This event is held in cooperation with Vancouver Island University – Creative Writing and Journalism Department. Local writers of all ages, living on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, are invited to submit original stories of up to 2,000 words in junior, youth and adult categories. Cash prizes will be awarded. The deadline for entries is March 1, 2010. Entry fee is $15 per submission.

Judith Millar, one of the 2009 winners of the Nanaimo Short Fiction Contest, expanded upon her submission and went on to receive the 2009 John Kenneth Galbraith Literary Award. Her story ‘The Insomniac’ tells of a man whose life unravels when he is unable to sleep.
