David Korinetz Writers of short fiction are encouraged to enter the 2010 Canadian Tales of the Fantastic Short Story Competition.

To be considered, a story must have two things. First, it must contain an element of the Fantastic; second, it must be identifiably Canadian. An element of the Fantastic is self-explanatory, but what is ‘Identifiably Canadian’? If the story is written by a Canadian, or written about Canadians, or takes place in Canada, then it meets the‘Identifiably
Canadian’ condition.

First place pays $500. Second place pays $150 and the third pays $100. Ten Honourable mention prizes of $25.00 will also be awarded. All winning entries will be published by Red Tuque Books in the upcoming anthology, ‘Canadian Tales Of The Fantastic’. Winners will receive a complementary copy of the anthology in addition to the prize money.

Great contest! Thanks for alerting us to it. The website says the story must contain an element of Mystery (not an element of the fantastic).
