Thomas Morton Memorial Prize in Literary Excellence submission deadline
September 30, 2019
The Thomas Morton Memorial Prize in Literary Excellence is awarded to the single best submission in the respective categories of poetry and fiction. This year, the writing contest will be judged by Michael Redhill (fiction) and Souvankham Thammavongsa (poetry).
This year the prize includes $1,000 for the winners in fiction and poetry, as well as publication in The Puritan‘s Fall 2019 Issue 47. One runner-up in each category will also receive $200. All winners will also receive a prize pack of books and subscriptions, from a list of publications to be updated as they are confirmed.
Winners of the writing competition will be announced at The Puritan‘s annual Black Friday celebration and year-in-review party in Toronto, Ontario in late November 2019.
