Attention short fiction writers! The New Brunswick newspaper Telegraph-Journal has started a new writing contest. The newspaper's Salon Fiction Prize will be awarded to the author a work of short fiction in English. The winning piece will be selected by a trio of judges from Atlantic Canadian universities: Thomas Hodd (University of Moncton) Alexander MacLeod (Saint Mary’s University) and Sue Goyette (Dalhousie University).

The contest is open to all residents of Canada. Stories should be between 1500 to 3000 words and must be unpublished and not under consideration in any other contest or competition. The winning piece will be published in an issue of the Telegraph-Journal’s art and culture section, "Salon," and the author will receive a prize of $1000.

Submissions may be sent via email to or by mail to 210 Crown Street, Saint John, NB, E2L 3V8. Please include a contact email and telephone number where you can be contacted. Entries will not be returned, so keep a copy.
