2024 City of Regina Writing Award: Call for Submissions


The Saskatchewan Writers' Guild is seeking submissions to the 2024 City of Regina Writing Award, funded by the City of Regina.


This competition is an award for literary merit in creative writing; it is open to writers in all genres. You are eligible to apply for this award if you are 19 years and older and if you were a Regina resident as of January 1, 2023. Applicants may submit one entry to this competition per year. Previous winning entries (for both winners and runners-up) may not be submitted again.


The award is designed to enable one local writer to work on a specific solo writing project for a three-month period. The winner will receive $4,500 and each runner-up will receive a one-week individual retreat at St. Peter’s Abbey. The award competition is juried anonymously by professional writers from outside Saskatchewan.

Submissions must be emailed to  by Wednesday, January 17, 2024, by midnight.
