Canada’s favourite indie arts and underground culture mag is hosting its annual literary throwdown. Here’s the scoop on how to enter, from our friends at Broken Pencil:

The world’s only battle royale short story contest is coming. Enter your best story (1500-3000 words) by December 31, 2010. Be one of 8 finalists and prepare for battle as your story goes head-to-head with other contestants in an elimination deathmatch tournament where the public’s vote is cut throat and final! Grand prize includes publication in the Spring 2011 issue, $300 cash money, a BP prizepack worth $300, and, most importantly, bragging rights forever more. Two runners-up will also receive publication in Broken Pencil and paid standard publication rates. Entrance fee: 20 dollars (includes a 1 year subscription to Broken Pencil).
