If you’ve got a great story, poem or piece of creative non-fiction (i.e., essay, memoir or commentary) that needs to be read to be believed (and is yet unpublished), enter it in subTerrain magazine’s 2014 Lush Triumphant literary awards competition. Winners and runners-up in each category get cash prizes AND publication in upcoming issues of the magazine.
UPDATE: The deadline has been extended til May 31, 2014. Entry fees include a one-year subscription to subTerrain. (And this ain’t your hippie-aunt-from-Saltspring’s lit mag, either.)
So get that brilliant piece printed on some 8 1/2 by 11, snug it up with a paper clip, and slip it into an envelope with a cheque for the entry fees and slide it on into the mailbox, pointing this way:Lush Triumphant Literary Awards c/o subTerrain Magazine PO Box 3008, Main Post Office Vancouver, BC V6B 3X5
(That’s Canada for you international and US readers – and your entries are welcome too.)
New for 2014: you can also enter online via this magic portal.
For more details, visit the Lush Triumphant webpage and Facebook.

What is the risk that a submission will be plagiarized?
Pretty much non-existent. SubTerrain is a well-established magazine that has been publishing for 25 years in Canada and running the contest for 12 years. The submissions to the contest are all read by multiple judges, all of whom are working writers themselves. Everyone is most concerned with finding great work to award. Thanks for the comment and I hope you consider entering!
