Literal Literary Postcard Story Contest


Suite 210, 111 West Hastings Street
Vancouver, BC V6B 1H4

Canada’s favorite micro-writing competition. Submit a story and a postcard-the relationship can be as strong or as tangential as you like, so long as there is a clear connection between the story and the image. If you’re not sure where to look for a postcard, you can make your own or visit Wikimedia Commons. The story can be fiction or non-fiction; maximum length is 500 words.
