Attention Writers!

2008 Call for Submissions

Lake Country Literary Lapses

The Mariposa Writers’ Group is seeking submissions for its annual Lake Country Poetry and Short Story Competitions (for commercially unpublished writers) to be held in conjunction with the 2008 Lake Country Literary Lapses Festival.

This year’s Festival (the fourth annual) will take place on Friday August 15 on the grounds of the Leacock Home and Museum, in Orillia. A variety of events (workshop, readings etc.) will take place throughout the day and the Manticore Book Awards (and cash prizes) for the competitive Short Story and Poetry submissions will be presented at an evening Gala.

We are interested in works, real or fictional, which evoke emotion and/or comment in some way on the human condition. We are also accepting submissions for our (non competitive - no fee) “Summer Readers” feature as well.

For full entry guidelines (Poetry, Short Story or Summer Reader), please contact

Heather Gosein at heather_gosein@hotmail.com or call 705- 484-5644
