The Postcard Contest is a twice annual competition for unpublished micro-writing by Nova Scotia residents. The contest alternates between short poetry (with entries accepted starting in March of each year) and short prose (with entries accepted starting in September of each year). Judged by WFNS board members and staff, entries may be on any theme and in any genre so long as they fit the form (poetry or prose) currently being accepted. The winning writers receive cash prizes and have their poems and stories published on the WFNS website and in Subtext, the WFNS newsletter.
