The Ottawa Public Library 50+ Short Story Contest Returns!

Diverse group of older adults participating in different social activities
Ottawa Public Library

The Ottawa Public Library is hosting its second annual Short Story Contest for older adults this spring!
If you are 50 years or older and have a valid Library card, you may submit a maximum of two short stories in either English or French. Stories must be original, unpublished works under 2000 words in length. They will be judged by a jury of local authors on the following criteria: characterization, plot, setting and atmosphere, narrative voice, and mechanics.

Submissions will be accepted from May 5 to June 2, 2015 (until 11:59 p.m). Contest winners will be notified by e-mail or phone by June 30, 2015.

The winning authors will share a cash prize, to be presented at our "An Afternoon of Storytelling" event on September 16, 2015, during which these authors will read from their stories.
