13th Annual Writing Contest Awards. Come join us as we announce the winners in the Victoria Writers’ Society 13th Annual Writing Contest.
Contest judges will present prizes to the top three entries in each of the three categories – poetry, fiction and creative non-fiction – and the winners will read from their work.
In addition, all contest winners will be invited to have their story or poem published in the upcoming issue of Island Writer magazine.

Family, friends, and the general public are welcome.

The readings begin at 7 o’clock promptly. The evening includes refreshments, mingling and distribution of Island Writer magazine vol. 13 issue 1. Our twice-yearly collection has gone digital for members. Hard copies will be at the meeting for those who ordered in advance. A limited number of extra copies will be available for purchase.


Perhaps you should consider submitting a piece to Island Writer – our twice-yearly collection from Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.

All members are encouraged to display their published works or related services around the room. Tables are supplied. 

VWS meetings are open and free to family, friends, and the general public. The evening includes refreshments. Please arrive a little early so we can all settle in comfortably. Speakers  begin promptly at 7 o’clock, and we must clear the library by nine sharp.
