The Vicious Circle is also debuting the Whistler Select Writing Awards, featuring three categories that recognize the best published journalism from the past year featuring Whistler, the best telling of an untold local story, and the best undiscovered fiction from the region. Submissions for the three categories — which are Whistler Features, Whistler Untold, and Postcard Jam, respectively — are due by Monday, Aug. 25.
“We’re launching this awards series to celebrate craft, community, place and perspective, which we believe are key ingredients required to cook up a great story,” Lisa Richardson, coordinator of the awards, said in a recent press release.
The total cash prize for all three categories is $2,500. For more information on the competitions, visit www.theviciouscircle.ca .
