The WordsThaw Prize is a contest run by the Malahat Review, one of Canada’s most esteemed literary magazines. It offers emerging Victorian writers the opportunity to submit works in two categories: poetry and micro-text (either short fiction or creative non-fiction). Winners receive a full WordsThaw Festival pass, a one-year subscription to the Malahat Review, and publication on the Malahat’s WordsThaw website. As was the case last year, winners are also published in the Martlet.
