Budding writers of both fiction and non-fiction have a chance to win free registration to Canada's largest Christian Writers' Conference!

The Word Guild's "Fresh Ink" Writing Contest is now open to all those unpublished Canadian Christian writers. Entrants of all ages - including teenagers and young adults - are encouraged to enter.

Original pieces of fiction or nonfiction short story, article, or poetry are welcome on the theme of "A New Creation." Submissions may not exceed 1,500 words. Entries will be judged by experienced writers and editors who will provide helpful feedback.

The purpose of the contest is to encourage and recognize new and aspiring writers. For that reason, "unpublished" means the writer has never been paid for something he or she has written.

Prizes will be awarded in two age categories:
  • Teens/Young Adults: 14 to 25
  • Adults: 26 and up
    • First-prize winners in each category will receive free registration to Canada's largest Christian writing conference, Write! Canada, a value of more than $400.
    • Second prize: A $100 gift certificate for The Word Guild, which may be used for conference registration, membership, etc.
Entries must be received by February 15, 2014.

For details and online registration follow this link to our website official 2014 Fresh Ink Submission Guidelines and Online entry form are found under The Word Guild's Resources tab.
