Halifax tales: Enter our postcard fiction contest

The winning story wins $100 prize, and will be published in The Coast.


In the spirit of Paris, je t’aime and New York Stories, The Coast is looking for fictional postcard stories inspired by Halifax, its landmarks, people, mood, weather or style. Anything goes, as long as there is a connection to our fair city (of course, this contest includes Dartmouth, Bedford, Sackville, etc.)

The winning entries, as selected by a panel of celebrity judges, will be published in our 16th anniversary issue on May 28. The first-prize story will receive $100.

Send your original story (maximum 250 words), as a Microsoft Word attachment, to arts@thecoast.ca, by April 27. Be sure to include your name, email and phone number.

Support The Coast

At a time when the city needs local coverage more than ever, we’re asking for your help to support independent journalism. We are committed as always to providing free access to readers, particularly as we confront the impact of COVID-19 in Halifax and beyond.
