Calling all writers: Oct. 31, 2017 is the final day you can enter the CBC Short Story Prize
The 2018 CBC Short Story Prize is open for submissions. Canadian writers can submit original, unpublished short stories until Oct. 31, 2017.
All submissions are read by a committee of established Canadian writers. Three prominent Canadians comprise the jury, who determine the shortlist and the winner.
The CBC Literary Prizes have been supporting and celebrating Canadian writers since 1979. Past winners include Michael Ondaatje, Michael Winter and Frances Itani.
