Canadian Travel Stories Contest: The Winners!

Last week the judges emerged from where I’d locked them up (Alice Munro’s basement) sweating, starving, crying but clutching their final votes in their hands. It’s taken me a bit of time to decipher their handwriting and to crunch the numbers. But- it’s all over; I’m proud to let you know that the Canadian Travel Stories Contest has its winners!

3rd Place goes to Len Joy for Riding a Greyhound Bus into the New World. A wonderful work of Canadian literature will find its way to him as a prize.

2nd Place goes to Janisse Ray for Pangea Split. A wonderful work of Canadian literature will find its way to her as a prize.

1st Place goes to Kuzhali Manickavel for Hoodoos. $50 will find its way to her as our grand prize.

We’ll present these writers’ three super stories throughout December on our blog. Please come and check them out.

Thanks to the other finalists and to all the other entrants. We can’t wait to have another contest we enjoyed this one so much. Even the most wounded of the judges has signed up for another round. I’ll hose Alice Munro’s basement down and we’ll see you again next time.
