The True Winter Tales Challenge is closed
Thanks to all those who participated! We really didn't know what to expect, calling for your True Winter Tales so soon after the short story deadline. But you proved to be up for the challenge, sending in more than 1,000 entries in the 19 days the competition was open. Bravo!!
We are now busily processing and evaluating the stories we got. We hope to announce the winner - as selected by writer Adam Gopnik - on Wednesday, December 7th.
Until then we will continue to post a pick-of-the-day on our site. If your story is not selected as a pick-of-the-day, please don't worry. It does not mean that your text did not make the cut. There are only so many stories we are able to post on the Canada Writes website.
If you missed the True Winter Tales Challenge, or are hungry for more, be sure to check back this December. We officially launch the Creative Nonfiction Competition on December 1st, and are in the midst of making plans for another writing challenge that will take place before the holidays.
So stay tuned! And thanks for writing!!
The Canada Writes Team
