Call for entries:
Commonwealth Book Prize and Commonwealth Short Story Prize

Commonwealth Writers – a world of new fiction

Today the Commonwealth Foundation made the call for entries for the new Commonwealth Book Prize and Commonwealth Short Story Prize.  The prizes are part of a new initiative, Commonwealth Writers, an online hub to inspire, inform and create a community of writers from all over the world. Together with the prizes, Commonwealth Writers unearths, develops and promotes the best new fiction from across the Commonwealth.

Awarded for best first book, the Commonwealth Book Prize is open to writers who have had their first novel (full length work of fiction) published between 1 January and 31 December 2011. Regional winners receive £2,500 and the overall winner receives £10,000. The Commonwealth Short Story Prize is awarded for the best piece of unpublished short fiction (2000-5000 words). Regional winners receive £1,000 and the overall winner receives £5,000. The winners will be announced in June 2012.

Chair of the Commonwealth Book Prize, Margaret Busby said “The significance of a prize such as this becomes greater with each year.  It is vital to encourage and celebrate the talent of newly emerging novelists whose words have the potential to inspire and enrich the entire literary world.  Searching out and promoting the best first books of fiction internationally is a serious task, a great honour and a wonderful challenge.”

Chair of the Commonwealth Short Story Prize, Bernardine Evaristo said “This wonderful prize will turn the spotlight on the increasingly popular short story form and aims to support and encourage short story writers worldwide.”

As one of the Commonwealth Foundation’s culture programmes, Commonwealth Writers works in partnership with international literary organisations, the wider cultural industries and civil society to help writers develop their craft. Commonwealth Writers is a forum where members can debate the future of publishing, get advice from established authors and ask questions of our writer in residence.

Commonwealth Foundation Director, Danny Sriskandarajah said “As one of the Commonwealth Foundation’s flagship projects, I’m delighted that we’re putting the prizes firmly on the contemporary map of new writing and launching a dedicatedCommonwealth Writers website to extend our global reach.”

PEI MODEL FOREST NETWORK PHOTO CONTEST

CHARLOTTETOWN, PEI — The Prince Edward Island Model Forest Network, in partnership with the Department of Environment, Energy and Forestry, is holding a special forest-themed photo contest over the fall and winter.

“The members of the Model Forest Network are encouraging people to head outside and capture images that reflect how they perceive and use our public and private forest lands,” said Richard Gill, chair of the Model Forest Network. “Whether enjoying wildlife, walking, hunting, working, snowshoeing or biking, we are looking for images that reflect the importance of Island forests.”
Prince Edward Island’s landscape is renowned for its blend of fields, water and forests. This landscape attracts amateur and professional photographers who want to capture images of what the Island means to them.
While the Island’s beaches, farms and small communities often receive the most attention, forests are often featured for their lush greens in spring and summer, vibrant red, orange and yellow of fall, and the white stillness of winter.  Some photographers also try to capture the hundreds of ways people use and connect with forests every day.
The contest is designed to promote awareness and appreciation of all types of forests including urban and rural, and public and private forests. Themes could also include how forests meet various economic, social, recreational, cultural, ecological and aesthetic needs.
“We are interested in Island photographs of almost anything forest-related,” said Mr. Gill.
The contest includes a special outdoor photography workshop that will feature tips and demonstrations on how to improve outdoor photography.  It will be held Saturday, October 22,  9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Central Forest District office,170 Beach Grove Road, Charlottetown.
The contest runs from October 22, 2011 to February 29, 2012.  Prizes will be offered for the winning photographs. For workshop information, contest rules and for details about prizes, visit http://www.peiforests.ca or contact Greg Ridgway at (902) 368-4800 or at gregmodelforest@gmail.com.

DATE: November 19 7:30 p.m.

LOCATION:  OYP Theatre School @ Shenkman

In 60 AD, London burned to the ground. The woman responsible was Boudicca, queen of the Iceni. When  the Roman army forced her from her throne, flogged her, and raped her  daughters, she gathered together an army to stand against them and  became a legend. Tonight we explore her life through stories and poetry  as three women share the ways that her bravery inspired them.  More information here –

Online Writing Classes

FanStory.com  is a writing site founded in 2000.

On this writing community all posts receive feedback from writers and readers. Feedback includes a detailed comment on the posted work and a rating. The site uses a six star ratings scale with “1” being the worst and “6” being the best.

Writers are ranked based on the feedback they receive. Separate rankings are available for Poets, Novelists, Short Works (short stories and essays) and Script Writers (television and other forms of screenplays). Trophies are rewarded to the top five writers in each of the individual rankings at the end of the year.

The site recognizes writing with “Recognized”, “All Time Best” and “Seal of Quality” levels. Each level is more difficult to receive with the final level determined by the Seal of Quality committee. The committee is made up of published authors and stand-out reviewers. They offer feedback to help writers get published.

The site features free writing contests with cash prizes. Site members also have the ability to create their own contests to challenge other writers to write about a specific topic or a specific form of writing (such as writing using specific poetry format).

The welcome page includes featured writing. It also includes writing that has been well received in the past 24 hours.

Each day over 200 stories and poems are posted. Over 7,000 comments are written on the writing posted daily. Writers keep full copyright to their posted work.

“Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons.

They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing.

All they do is show you’ve been to college.”

Kurt Vonnegut
