Food for Thought
Edible Nonfiction Challenge now closed
Thanks to all who kept our bellies full with the tasty slices of life you sent our way!
It's now up to our partner, Air Canada's enRoute magazine, to select the winner. Editor-in-chief Ilana Weitzman has been our guest for the past few weeks, guiding us through the ins and outs of food writing with our Food for Thought master class. We are happy to have her select the yummy piece that most satisfied our cravings.

We will be announcing the winner mid-January. Until then, we will continue to post picks-of-the-day on the Canada Writes site. Don't worry if you do not see your entry, you are still in the running for the prize. We receive so many entries for our challenges that it is impossible for us to post every one we like.
The winner of The Edible Nonfiction Challenge will receive a $200 gift card for the restaurant of their choice featured among enRoute's Canada's Best New Restaurants 2011. The winning story will also be featured on our website. If the winner is not able to make use of the gift card, he or she may opt instead for an iPod touch loaded with the brand-spanking-new enRoute food app, enRoute Eats.
If you enjoyed writing and sharing your own personal stories, consider participating in the CBC Creative Nonfiction Competition. You could win $6,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts and publication in enRoute magazine. The deadline to submit your 1,200 to 1,500 word stories is February 1st. Please be sure to read more about it before you do.
Another public writing challenge is scheduled for the week of January 23rd. Be sure to mark that week on your calendars!
Thank you again to everyone who participated!
