Kill a Critic Contest

Kill a Critic Contest

Posted by Eric

A fun new contest from Biblioasis and Seen Reading:

Do you bear the scars of CanLit’s internecine wars? Have you spent a small fortune on postage and only have a drawerful of rejection slips to show for it? Has the world been slow to recognize your evident talent? Then, dear reader, this contest is for you.

To celebrate the launch of Terry Griggs’s Thought You Were Dead, Biblioasis and Seen Reading are teaming up to help you unleash the murder we know is in your heart with our Revenge-Lit contest. Pen a flash fiction of 250 words or so (though, in truth, no one is likely to count them) on the (fictional) literary critic whose body once filled the chalk outline and what he did to get there and send it by June 12th to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). The best of the entries will be published as they are received at RevengeLit.blogspot.com. The winning entry will:

  1. Receive a one hundred dollar cash prize
  2. Be published in a forthcoming issue of CNQ: Canadian Notes & Queries
  3. A Biblioasis press catalogue of in-print trade titles (approx. 40 books, retail value approx. $1000.00)

Entries to be judged by Dan Wells, Julie Wilson and Terry Griggs.
