Kootenay Literary Competition nears deadline

Last chance to submit fiction, non-fiction and poetry to annual contest.

Friday is the last day you can submit fiction, non-fiction or poetry to the annual Kootenay Literary Competition.

“The clock is ticking, Kootenay writers! Time to put the final spit shine on those stories or poems and send them in. Remember, the deadline is this Friday at 5pm–late entries will not be accepted,” the KLC wrote in a Facebook status on Wednesday.

This year’s theme is Velocity. Writers are encouraged to interpret the theme in any way they like and through any of the genre categories.

The competition is open to anyone in the Kootenays 18 years and older. Cash prizes will be awarded to first and second place finishers in each category.

This year the judges are Tara Cunningham (Non-fiction), Jane Byers (Poetry) and Verna Relkoff (Fiction).

Entries are due at 5 p.m on January 16.
