In collaboration with The Malahat Review, the Martlet is pleased to present the winners of the annual WordsThaw Prize. The WordsThaw Prize is a writing contest for beginning writers living in Victoria, and run by The Malahat Review, a literary magazine published by the University of Victoria (www.malahatreview.ca).
The Martlet and the Malahat congratulate the first-place winners in two categories, poetry and micro-text, chosen by contest judge Janet Rogers. They each have received a prize of $500.
Look for both in our upcoming print issue on March 23, and check out The Malahat Review’s annual WordsThaw Festival, which is on now until March 19.
