As the inaugural 506 Streetcar Project Festival carries on, the Ashdale Writers Group is announcing a writing contest. The contest, supported by the Toronto Public Library, the Gerrard India Bazaar BIA, and Beach Metro News, is open to anyone.
Writing of any sort inspired by the 506 streetcar – fiction or non-fiction – is welcome and encouraged. The maximum word count is, of course, 506 words. The deadline is midnight on Monday, March 21.
The winner will receive a $100 prize from the Gerrard BIA, and the winning entry will be published in the April 5 edition of Beach Metro News.
The winning entry will be announced at the Gerrard-Ashdale branch of the Toronto Public Library, 1432 Gerrard St. E., at a special event on Thursday, March 31. The night gets underway at 7:15 p.m., and along with the announcement of the winner, writers from the Ashdale Writers Group will be reading some of their work.
