Write a story that unfolds in two or more Canadian time zones. The Short Long-Distance Writing Contest is now closed! Thank you to all who entered.
How it works:
Send us a story, 500 words or less, fiction or non-fiction, that spans two or more Canadian time zones. This could mean a physical transition across time zones (like a road trip), or an implied transition between them (like a phone call). The details are up to you—get creative! The Short Long-Distance Writing Contest is now closed! Thank you to all who entered.
