Sudbury publishing company Latitude 46 is holding its first BIPOC manuscript contest. 

In collaboration with Black Lives Matter Sudbury, the publisher is calling for northern Ontario BIPOC creators with unpublished manuscripts to submit their work in creative nonfiction, fiction, short fiction or poetry.

A release from Latitude 46 states that the winner will be offered a publishing contract that includes working with an editor, designer, marketing and publicity, but that also, it is a chance to “polish up your best writing and get editorial feedback.”

Deadline to submit is Sept. 30, and the manuscript and bio information should be sent through the online portal at Include contact information, (full, name, mailing address, and email address) on the first page of your submission.
