Country:

Eligibility:

Overview
This workshop-based online program focuses on providing structured support for new fiction writers wanting to improve their writing skills.

What does the program offer?
An energizing, transformative experience designed to help participants take their fiction to a new level, this program is a perfect entry point into Banff Centre’s full suite of Literary Arts programs. This program offers new writers of fiction the opportunity to work on a portion of a manuscript in a workshop setting with editorial faculty. Participants will have the opportunity to work closely with faculty - Katherena Vermette, Michelle Good, and Amber Dawn, as well as partake in Q&A sessions, and one-on-one workshopping. Instructors will discuss ideas, experiences, and obstacles that participants may be encountering with their new manuscripts and emerging practices.  

The program will help writers build their critical vocabulary, making them better critics of their own and others’ work. Participants will also learn more about the craft of writing, and about the conventions and possibilities for innovation in fiction.

Merit – not means – drives opportunity at Banff Centre. Participants in this program will receive 100% scholarship for tuition.

Who should apply?
Any new writer of fiction interested in structured feedback from faculty and fellow participants will benefit from this program. The program is open to writers with no publications, a few publications, or even a first book.

Writers from all backgrounds, and all gender identities and expressions working in fiction are encouraged to apply.

*Financial Aid up to 100% available for participants to cover program fees.

Program Dates: August 28 - September 3, 2021
Program Deadline: July 14, 2021

Eligibility:

The A3 Press is looking for new chapbook submissions. Fiction, poetry, art, comics, illustration. All genres welcome. Deadline is 1 August, 2021.

The A3 Press is a place for work that's lyrical and intense, a bit weird, hybrid, experimental. We like work that is urgent, that says something about what it's like to be alive at this point in history. 

Do you have a series of poems or short stories, or a long story that can be spread out over several pages? Maybe a short play in 12 parts or scenes, or even 12 very short plays? Do you have a combination of drawings and short stories? Poems and photographs? Maybe 12 drawings or photographs without text that would fit into our A3 map-fold format?

We publish approximately 2-4 titles every six months, and work closely with our authors and artists throughout the editing process to make sure the design, paper, and packaging are fitting to each title.

Selected titles receive $250 (approx £200) and 10 copies of their chapbook.

The submission fee is $20 (approx £15) per submission. Each submission includes a chapbook of your choice from our current list. Multiple submissions are welcome. All writers and artists welcome.

$250 and 10 copies

_______________________________________________________

About Us: Wild Roof Journal is an online art & literary publication that will feature work from a wide range of creative people—painters, drawers, photographers, digital artists, writers, poets, and anyone else who is passionate about the creative process and self-expression.

Our primary goal is to provide a welcoming environment for artists to share their work. The people behind the scenes of Wild Roof are fellow artists—we know the amount of time and energy it takes to produce a finished piece, and the challenges of getting it out into the world for people to see. We want to offer opportunities for artists to connect with other artists as well as to promote their work to a larger audience.

We would like to keep our themes broad enough to offer a lot of room for interpretation. Our emphasis is on presenting the most engaging and thoughtful artwork possible, not on adhering to strict rules for subject matter or style. As a guideline for what we find interesting, here are a few points to consider:

Our aesthetic preferences are varied, but we tend to favor unique perspectives and experimentation. More traditional forms are appreciated as well; however, with wildness comes some level of the unpredictable and the weird… If you feel like you do things a bit differently than “the norm” (whatever that means to you), then you’re probably in the right place!

We tend to like work that is inquisitive and curious, at times mysterious, at times playful. So, if you find questions more interesting than answers, you’re on the right track for us!

Although we have categories for our submissions, we are absolutely interested in hybrid forms or work that defies easy categorization. If this describes your work, we encourage you to submit; if necessary, you may pick the category that’s most fitting and add a note to explain your work in more detail.

_______________________________________________________

Note for all submissions:

Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please withdraw pieces from consideration if they are accepted elsewhere. If you have a previously published piece that you feel deserves our attention (and you have retained the rights), please acknowledge the previous publication.

If your work is accepted, you agree to give Wild Roof Journal online publishing and archival rights; following publication, all rights revert back to the author/artist. We ask that you credit Wild Roof Journal if the work is published elsewhere in the future.
