The Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia has released the list of finalists for the 36th Atlantic Writing Competition. To mark the occasion, we thought we’d share some tips for absorbing the fate of your manuscript.
Do treat yourself! You’ve earned it.
Don’t make voodoo dolls representing your competitors. Voodoo is not a method with proven results.
Do commiserate with friends, family, and fellow writers.
Don’t commiserate with the internet.
The Thomas Head Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award, the Evelyn Richardson Memorial Non-Fiction Award and the Atlantic Poetry Prize were presented at a ceremony hosted by the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia (WFNS) on Friday, October 12, 2012 at the Dalhousie University Club in Halifax.
