Don't miss your chance to enter one of Canada's most prestigious literary competitions! You have two days to hone your prose — CBC's Canada Writes short story competition closes on November 1, 2012.

From our friends at the CBC:

Prizes go to the best original, unpublished work of short fiction received. All entries must be between 1,200 and 1,500 words. Judging is blind and there is a $25.00 entry fee per submission.

First Prize is $6,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts, a two-week writing residency at The Banff Centre and publication in enRoute magazine.

Past winners of the prize include Michael Ondaatje, Gwendolyn MacEwen, Camilla Gibb and Michael Winter.
