You can find all of the details and a list of past winners – including seasoned and emerging writers – here: https://countyarts.ca/wind-water-writing-contest/.

  • Pieces can be any genre, but poetry will be a separate prize, and fiction and non fiction as a joint prize.
  • Pieces should be no longer than 1600 words.
  • Writers may enter as often as they like.
  • The piece submitted cannot be previously published.
  • Only emailed entries will be considered.
  • The written piece cannot be under consideration for a prize elsewhere until the winners are announced.
  • Ensure your name does not appear on your submission anywhere except on the cover letter, as submissions are judged blind.

  • Entries must be accompanied by a $15 entry fee and $10 for additional entries.

  • The contest judges reserve the right to dismiss any submissions that do not meet the guidelines above.
  • Our work is guided by our Inclusivity, Diversity & Equity policy. Submissions containing content that contravenes this policy will not be read or considered, and entry fees will not be refunded.
