Ok, I can't stay long. I've got another essay to write.
The province of Quebec is sponsoring a writing competition (QWC), and the grand prize is a $1000 for 1200 words. That almost eighty-four cents per word! Awesome. You have to be a resident of QC, though, which I have been for three years now.
The main thing is not the QWC. It's the idea of rewarding the act of writing, which still seems unreal to me. It's summertime, and folks are dining out, walking around, going to festivals . . . all that stuff. So what could you do with your summer play-time? Sit back and write, of course.
Montrealers are big on down time, and they pay! Not a bad place to be. Does your city sponsor such events?
