Enter to Win! – The Last Word on First Words!
Starting May 1st Winnipeg Public Library wants you to write and tell them the “last word” about your favourite piece of writing by an Indigenous writer from Turtle Island (North America).
There are 2 categories to enter depending on your age: one for adults and one for youth (ages 12-17). There will be a winner picked in each category. The contest is open until June 30th – winners to be announced in July.
You could win a Sony eReader and an amazing collection of books by Indigenous writers – consider it your own library of voices from Turtle Island! Winning entries will be posted on the Winnipeg Public Library website, Facebook and Twitter accounts. Excerpts will also be featured in the @ the Library newsletter.
For complete contest rules and info on how to enter, visit the new Aboriginal Services section of our website: http://wpl.winnipeg.ca/library/aboriginalservices.asp
And be sure to check out the latest copy of @ the Library, featuring Katherena Vermette, Métis writer of poetry and fiction and member of the Aboriginal Writers’ Collective, talking about the writers she loves (spoiler – there are lots!). http://firstname.lastname@example.org
