Short Story Competition now closed

The 2014 CBC Short Story Competition is now closed. A big thank you to all who participated!

We now enter the next stage—the reading process. For the next few months our readers will work hard to evaluate the thousands of stories that came in to put together the longlist for the prize. 

Expect to hear the longlist in February and the shortlist in March.

Have another story in you? Itching to compete again? If you have a personal story to tell, consider entering our Creative Nonfiction Competition. It launches December 1st. 

Details can be found here.


To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
