Coffee Shop Author

Coffee Shop Author is a writing contest for authors wishing to hone their craft and who enjoy writing. Authors register with Coffee Shop Author and secure the endorsement of their favourite coffee shop (or library or other public space - yes, we'll even accept that you do most of your writing in a pub!). They then pledge to work on a novel, short story collection, poetry collection or a work of creative non-fiction at their chosen space between October 2010 and March 2011.

Through the Coffee Shop Author website, blog space, and interactive map, participants will have an opportunity to become part of a world-wide network of writers.

Registration for Coffee Shop Author runs until February 15th 2011. Manuscripts must be submitted by email by March 31st 2011. Included for the fee of $30.00 (CDN/US) is registration in the contest, a Coffee Shop Author sticker for your mug, bike or car, and blog space to share your experiences with fellow writers and the world.
