2013 marked the fifth year that Quattro has run its annual Ken Klonsky Novella Contest. The contest is now open for 2014. We invite submissions from Canadian citizens from coast to coast; the competition is fierce, with winners being awarded publication. We are consistently amazed at the talent of Canadian writers, and thrilled to see more and more writers experimenting with the great form of the novella, whose time to shine in North America, we feel, is finally here (and long overdue!)
While contest-winning stories vary greatly in content and style, one thing they all have in common is strong writing from fascinating voices. Below, check out our list of award winning books. Until July 12, all past winners are on sale!
