The 14th Annual Okanagan Short Story Contest is now accepting stories from writers in the Okanagan region. Award-winning author Karen Connelly (The Lizard Cage) will select the best three stories to be awarded cash prizes in spring 2012.

The contest invites all Southern Interior writers from east of Hope, west of the Alberta boundary, north of the U.S. border and south of Williams Lake to submit their original unpublished works of fiction. The deadline for submissions is Dec. 15.

Cash prizes are offered for the best adult short fiction from the Southern Interior. Stories ranging from 1,000 to 4,000 words are eligible and all entries must be original, unpublished works of fiction, submitted on letter-size plain white paper, double-spaced and typed. There is no limit on the number of entries, but a $15 entry fee is required with each.

The Short Story Contest is co-sponsored by the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies at UBC Okanagan, Okanagan College, CBC Radio One and the Central Okanagan Foundation.
