Canada Reads Contest

Canada Reads 2013 is coming up fast on CBC Radio.  This year the five books all represent different regions of the country.  Representing BC and the Yukon is Olympic gold medalist Carol Huynh and the novel Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese.

In the novel character Saul Indian Horse experiences a life change and we'd like to hear about those moments in your life. 

So here is the writing contest; we want to know about an epiphany that changed your life course.  What happened and how did you turn your life around?

Tell your story in 300 words or less.  We'll pick five favourites who will all win a set of the five Canada Reads books.  The winning story will be produced for CBC Radio and the web.

The deadline to enter is Sunday Jan 27.  Please send your entries to nxnw(at)cbc.ca

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.
