Fiction and Poetry Competition: The Thomas Morton Prize


The Puritan is proud to announce the return of our online literary contest!

The Second Annual Thomas Morton Memorial Prize in Literary Excellence recognizes the best in fiction and poetry received in 2013. The winners in the fields of fiction and poetry will each receive a generous prize package including monetary compensation as well as a collection of books from 12 of Canada's most celebrated publishers (a mega-boost to the neglected library).

The winning entries will also appear in The Puritan Issue XXIII: Fall 2013 and be honoured at our launch party, Black Thursday.

Be the second pair of writers to pin the longest literary prize title onto your lists of accolades. Brave the frontier today!
