Deadline

I read in one place on the website that the deadline is Feb. 1st, and in another that it's Feb. 28th. Can you please clarify?

Hi Jill,

The setting for the story can be anywhere in the world and this goes for the postcard itself as well.

The Canadian connection is only required for regular, non-contest, submission to Geist.

postcard place

I thought I read somewhere that the postcard has to be a Canadian postcard, but now I can't see that anywhere... can the story take place elsewhere?

Hi Judith,

Geist welcomes all international entrants (best of luck to you and your class!).

The entry process is the same for Canadian and international entrants.

Please note that international entrants will receive a subscription to the digital edition of Geist

check on American bank?

I am having my dear "Memoir Sisters" class enter this contest as a writing assignment. We are all in the USA. Can we write checks off our banks here? Anything else we should do differently because we're in the USA. We're very excited about this contest & the opportunity it gives our creative writing class.
Thanks - Judith S. Crandell

Postcard Story Contest

I'm so glad there is still time for this! You're the only mag I'd take with me for any trip. Well, except for my Bugs Bunny one...when my brain is on overload from the maze that is social media.
