For the writerlies looking for writing prompts and competition deadlines, please scroll down. I'll start with events :
1. My friend Rena says: " Come to the V-Day: Vagina Monologues! February 11th show at SMU Friday night. $15, doors open at 7:30, show runs 8-10pm. There's another show at The Company House on Saturday night (2202 Gottingen Street). See The Coast for details. Believe me, if you haven't seen it, you will never think of the vagina in the same way again!!!!
2. And now for the really HOT! How about Flamenco Valentine on Sat., Feb. 12, 8 p.m. It's being held at the Schooner Room at the Casino. $24 - $32. For more info, call 451-1221.
Why not put pen to paper inspired by one of these provocative photos? Competition deadlines below...
1. February 19th - Wyn Lit 24 Hour Short Story Writing Contest. If you're a member it's free; otherwise a one-time entry fee of $5. This is a cool one! When you enter, Wynterblue Publishing sends you a theme and you have 24 hours to write the story. For more info, click here.
2. March 1st - Jason A. Hannah Medal (book award). Now this one has me stumped!!
Although it's listed in my calendar, I can't find any information on their website www.rsc.ca. My calendar, does however, offer an e-mail. So if anyone has a book they would like to nominate or to nominate themselves, I'd suggest e-mailing their contact at firstname.lastname@example.org. [the organization is the Royal Society of Canada - they usually recognize scholarly works mostly, but this may be something new?]
