Friday, May 24, 2013.

That’s the deadline for submissions to this year’s Random House of Canada Student Award for Fiction.

If you were enrolled in a course offered by the Creative Writing Program at University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies between May 15, 2012 and May 15, 2013 (today!), YOU’RE ELIGIBLE.

(Dear students o’ mine: this includes you if you took part in my UofT online course “Memories into Story” in Spring or Fall 2012, or are enrolled in my current class.)

One winner will receive a prize of $1,000. Two finalists will also be selected, and the winner and finalists will be published in a chapbook.

Entries must be post-marked on or before May 24.

Find out more about the contest and check out the submission guidelines here.
