The Malahat Review, Canada’s premier literary magazine, invites emerging short-story writers from Canada and abroad to enter the Far Horizons Award for Short Fiction. Eligible authors have yet to publish their fiction in book form (a book is defined to have a length of 48 pages or more).
– Eligible writers have yet to publish their fiction in book form and may submit one short story per entry.
– Writers who have self-published a book of fiction are considered to have published their fiction in book form and are therefore ineligible to enter the Far Horizons Awards. You are, however, welcome to enter your work in our Open Season Awards.
– The story must not exceed 3,500 words. Please double space your work.
This year’s contest will be judged by Elyse Friedman.
