The Lit POP Contest: Early Bird Special

From our friends at Matrix Magazine:

Enter your story or poems to Lit POP by May 31, 2013, and receive a free year subscription to Matrix Magazine (a $25 value)!

The POP Montreal International Music Festival and Matrix Magazine have once again joined forces to rock your literary world with Canada's most innovative and exciting literary competition. We are looking for writing that really pops. So if you can bring the noise with poetry and/or short fiction, it’s time to smash some bottles and trash some hotels (but not really though). If you have what it takes, you will get your work published in Matrix and get free travel to POP Montreal for a night in your honour.

This year’s judges are the acclaimed writers Eileen Myles (Poetry) and Sheila Heti (Fiction)!

The winners, one from each category, will receive a round-trip ticket to POP Montreal from September 25-29, 2013, a VIP pass to the POP Montreal Festival, free accommodation at a bed and breakfast, fall publication in Matrix Magazine with full honorarium and presentation at a special Matrix Lit POP event during the festival.

This contest is open to residents of Canada and the United States. The deadline for all submissions is June 30, 2013. Winners will be notified in August. Poets are asked to send no more than five poems; fiction writers should send stories of no more than 3000 words. Each entry is $25 and entries and entry fees should be mailed to:

Matrix Publications
1400 de Maisonneuve Blvd W., LB 658
Montreal, QC
H3G 1M8

Please include your email address. Cheques or money orders should be made out to "Matrix Publications." PayPal is also available. Multiple entries are welcome.

Entries can also be emailed to and will be considered valid once payment is verified. Full contest details can be found here.
