The Malahat Review, Canada’s premier literary magazine, invites emerging and established writers from Canada, the United States, and elsewhere to enter the 2014 Constance Rooke Creative Nonfiction Contest. A prize of $1,000 will be awarded to the best work that embraces, but is not limited to, the personal essay, memoir, narrative nonfiction, social commentary, travel writing, historical accounts, and biography, all enhanced by such elements as description, dramatic scenes, dialogue, and characterization.
All entries should be previously unpublished, and between 2,000-3,000 words in length. Entry fee for one submission is $35 for Canadian entries, $40 for U.S. entries, and $45 elsewhere. Additional entries are $15 per submission.
The deadline for this contest is August 1, 2014 (postmark date). Entries can be sent by regular mail or email.
