Submissions may include any work of fiction: poem, short story, fan-fiction, novel, fairy tale, etc. The deadline for this contest is Nov. 30th.

Submit your work of fiction to the library by emailing it to corrie.brown@prl.ab.ca or dropping it off at the library in an envelope or binder, along with your name and contact information. Submissions will be reviewed by library staff, and the top three winners will receive a prize.

All entries will be destroyed upon completion of the contest, unless otherwise requested. Winners will be announced the second week of December.

Put your writing caps on, and don’t miss out on a chance to win some awesome prizes, and of course, bragging rights!
