The 2022-23 NB Writing Competition is now open!
The New Brunswick Writing Competition began in 1985, the same year as the WFNB's date of incorporation. We’ve held it annually ever since, awarding hundreds of prizes over the decades. Many past winners have since achieved national and international publishing fame. It opens every year on December 1. The competition is open to all residents of New Brunswick, Canada, and all WFNB members. See the guidelines below, and click the titles on the right for a description of each category.
If you are a WFNB member, make sure you log into this website with your username and password first, before you pay for your submission, in order to receive the member price.
Submitting to the competition is easy!
1) Pay for your submission here on this page, by clicking your category below (If you're a member, remember to log in with your account prior to purchasing a competition submission, so that you can pay the member price).
2) Email your blind submission and a separate cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. In your cover letter, be sure to include your name, address, email, phone number, submission category, title of your submission, and a brief bio. We'll acknowledge receipt of your submission. Good luck!
