Aspiring novelists, young writers and striving poets can submit their work for the Niagara-on-the-Lake Writers’ Circle Rising Spirits Writing Contest until Oct. 31.

Pieces must be under 2,500 words and can fall under one of the four categories: short story, non-fiction, poetry and youth.

The Writers’ Circle will accept multiple entries, as long as they are submitted by the original author.

Sponsored by the Old Winery Restaurant, Crabtree Publishing and the Niagara Historical Society, the contest gives writers a chance to showcase their latest work. Winners will be published in an anthology, and awards, community prizes and cash will be awarded.

Hopeful writers can enter their submissions by visiting the NOTL Writers’ Circle website  at

The entry fee is $15 for non-members, $10 for members of the Writers’ Circle, and free for youth from 14 to 18 years old.

Only permanent residents of Ontario are eligible.
