CHOICE WORKS

Volume Sixteen~ March 2002-March 2006

The Canadian Writer's Journal has doubled the chances of aspiring short fiction writers to see their work in print and win money. The Short Fiction Contest continues to provide a venue for mainstream short fiction writing. For an annual updated list of writing competitions in Canada, please see The Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar.

Entries are numbered upon arrival, and the identities of the authors are unknown until the judging decisions have been made. Then, and only then, are the authors' names matched back to their works. All place winners and Honourable Mentions. The winning fiction pieces from each contest were collected into a small chapbook entitled Choice Works which was sent to all winners. This Choice Works edition is a paperback collection of those stories, hopefully making the collection more attractive for bookstores, libraries, and book shelves in general. The stories deserve to gain a wider audience.

This copy of Choice Works is Volume 16 collecting the winners from March 2002 through March 2006 in one paperback volume.
