In April 2014 we moved the office to a new location which will enable us to open a book store in addition to our publishing business. The new address is 50 Silver Street, Box 620, Cobalt, ON P0J 1C0. If you're in the area, please stop in to see us this summer. In addition, we are complying with the new anti-spam legislation by offering a new newsletter specifically for the Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar, and will send updates and pre-publication offers through that medium. Our Newsletters are posted on the website, and the emails are very brief announcements that there is a new Newsletter posted. It has worked well for our main Newsletter and announcements, but we felt there was a more particular need for the CWCC during the year.
If your group is planning a competition in 2015, we are looking for your information now. We try to post new contests, or changes in deadline dates on the Updates page through the year, and will notify the updates through the CWCC Newsletter. The links for contest submission are on the left-hand bar. Second from the top, that's it. Choose the most convenient format, or copy the form into the body of an email and send it to us.
This print version is available in Kindle or EPub formats for your electronic readers from this site. We also have the EPub version listed with Kobo. From conversations over last summer, it seems that the electronic version of the CWCC was portable and not able to be lost on vacation, while the print copy stayed safely at the desk. It was an interesting perspective.
Twelve years. This is our twelfth year doing the Contest Calendar, and it is more popular every year.
Always check for your contest, make sure it is still operating, and that the deadline is where you thought it would be. Many things change after we go to press. Many of them are not planned. Check again about a month before the deadline to confirm that there haven't been any other changes. And if there are, please send me an email, or a note to let us know. Let us know if you hear of any new opportunities as well. Check the Update page during the year.
Full CONTEST information is in the book. The 2014 Book Awards listings can be obtained directly from the Award sponsors. It's good to know what awards are there and and when their deadlines are. There are an incredible variety of awards. Newest awards we noticed were for blogs, e-zines and graphic novels. Most of them need submissions of your published book from your publisher, not the author. With smaller presses, it may be helpful to gently inquire as to whether your book will be submitted. The sizes of some of those prizes would make it feel more like winning a lottery, but they are given out, and if you qualify, your name should be in the hat. It's good for book sales, and general publicity. And possibly for your pocketbook as well.
Hope you are having a wonderful writing year.
Many thanks for your support, especially during this year.
