No-Cost Contest: Canadian Writers Collective

You don’t have to be Canadian to enter this contest, which seeks Canadian travel stories, defined as stories that feature a trip, “taken, not taken imagined–to/from/between places in Canada–real, surreal, unreal.” Keep your story under 1000 words. First prize: $50 (Canadian dollars, presumably). Submit via e-mail by September 30, 2006. There’s no entry fee. Full guidelines/submission instructions here.

    Hi Erika,its good to see a ‘no-cost contest’You have no idea how much net surfing I’ve been doing tonight in trying in vain to find a writing contest of which didn’t charge,fully knowing of course why (some)do charge.
    That said,I perfer my first few contests to be free,as a form of a project to inspire me more away from my own blog of three years.

    I tried this site once,didn’t like it.It didn’t have the human contact and family feel (journalspace)has,which I call home.
    That too,said,I thank-you for your blog and free contest.And feel welcome to come visit me at
