Manuscript must be printed on white paper, double-spaced, 12 point Times New Roman font, with page numbers. Author’s name should not appear on the work.

The entry fee is $10 per submission and writers can enter as often as they like as long as there is a fee for each entry.

The deadline for this year’s entries is July 30, 2013.  There will only be one winner in each category and they will  be announced Aug. 31, 2013.

Winners’ entries will be published, with the author’s/poet’s photo and bio, on the PWAP website (www.penwriters.com). Money Order or cheque of appropriate fee must be included with all entries and made payable to PWAP Clem Battye Contest.
