From our friends at The Writers? Community of Durham Region:

Amprosia, the annual prose competition run by the Writers? Community of Durham Region, is looking for entries. The contest welcomes fiction and non-fiction, accepting prose of all kinds: literary, science fiction, children?s, memoir, essay, creative non-fiction. All entries compete head to head, word for word.

The $1000 first prize includes publication in the Amprosia literary anthology. The $400 second prize winner, $200 third place winner and selected honourable mentions will also be published in the anthology. All published entries reap $25 payment and a contributor?s copy. What?s more, each and every entry in the contest receives written feedback from the judges.

The maximum word count is 1000 words. The entry fee is just $20 Canadian — $25 for international entries.

Amprosia is also running a cover design contest. The prize is $150, publication on the cover of the Amprosia anthology, plus a contributor?s copy. Entry fee is $5 Canadian.
