Writing Contests

Every year, the Vancouver Writers Fest launches an adult and children’s writing contest for both fiction and poetry. A jury of writers judges the entries each year, awarding both cash prizes and publication.

Many winners have subsequently had their works published—either by a publisher or in major literary journals.

The 2017 Writing Contests Are Now Closed – Winners will be announced October 16
