The Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador (WANL) announces the long list for its 3rd Annual Postcard Story Contest


The Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador (WANL) is pleased to announce the long list for its 3rd Annual Postcard Story Contest:

  • Don’t Fix It by Chris Bruce
  • (re)Wild Children by Allie Duff
  • Tea for Who by Tiffanie George
  • Low to the Ground by Willow Kean
  • Sharo by Mary Pike
  • The Cartography of Them, by Kristine Power
  • The Last Time by Holly Rose
  • On the Rocks by Beth Ryan
  • Resurfacing by David Sparks


This year’s edition of the contest challenged entrants to write a short story including the word broken that was no longer than 250 words. The keyword is a nod to WANL’s contest partner Broken Books cafe and bookstore.

“This year we received almost 100 submissions from across the province from Norris Point to North Harbour to Happy Valley-Goose Bay,” says WANL’s executive director Alison Dyer. “That’s the biggest uptake yet, and we appreciate the help of our partners Broken Books, the Newfoundland Quarterly, and the NL Public Library in spreading the word about this writing competition.”

This year’s judges were CBC Radio Host Angela Antle and author-actor Greg Malone. The winner and runners-up of the contest will be announced, and prizes given, at a celebration on Tues. June 30, starting at 8 pm, at the Ship Pub in St. John’s. The shortlisted entries will be published in the summer issue of the Newfoundland Quarterly, available July 1.
