bigstock-Get-Started-Crossword-11506433The Antigonish Review, Canada’s Eclectic Review, offers two contests (i) Great Blue Heron Poetry Contest (deadline: 31 June) and (ii) the Sheldon Currie Fiction Prize (deadline: 31 May). $2,400 in Prizes! For more information about these and other contests go here.

I’m partial to The Antigonish Review because one of its supporters is St. Francis Xavier University where I did my Diploma in Adult Education in 1991 and then taught the program for the University as an itinerant instructor for three fabulous years.
