Enter ELLE Canada's first ever writing competition

To celebrate Canada’s 150th, we are on the hunt for the country’s boldest, most exciting new writing star. Could that be you, dear reader?

For our first-ever ELLE Canada Writing Competition, we’re inviting YOU to send us a 700-word personal essay on the fashion moment that changed your life.

This topic is open to interpretation—you can write about a monumental event, a highly personal discovery or even a simple occurrence that has affected you and the way you think, behave or dress.

Our panel of judges (who are all kind of a big deal in the Canadian literary world) will carefully select the winner, and you will not only see your work in our November 2017 issue but also win $500. Deadline for submissions is August 31, 2017.

HOW TO ENTER:

1) Email your submission (no attachments; please paste into the body of the email) to elle.contest@tva.ca.

2) Please include your full name, address, date of birth, email and telephone number.

The contest judges are:

Vanessa Craft, ELLE Canada editor-in-chief

Sarah Heller, literary agent

Diane Turbide, publishing director at Penguin Canada

Heather O'Neill, award-winning author of The Lonely Hearts Hotel
