Do you live in the Sea to Sky Corridor, love the outdoors, and want to try your hand at writing?
The Outdoor Endurance & Survival Writing Contest is now open for entry to anyone living in the Sea to Sky region between Lions Bay and Lillooet.
- Entrants may submit writing in any of the following literary genres – poetry, creative non-fiction, fiction and spoken word.
- Writing entries must be a maximum of 500 words or less.
- The theme is Outdoor Endurance & Survival. You may wish to write about endurance OR survival (or both), but the story must take place outside!
- The contest will have three categories: Open, Indigenous, and Youth (up to 18 years). Please select one category for your entry. Writers may submit multiple entries.
- One writer will be chosen from each category to read their winning entry at the Outdoor Endurance & Survival Reading Event, Friday April 13th at 7pm the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre in Whistler. Winners will receive a $100 cash prize and two tickets to the event for guests. The winning entries will be published in the inaugural edition of the Sea to Sky Review at www.seatoskyreview.ca.
