Submit to Broken Pencil’s Indie Writers Deathmatch

indie writers deathmatch

Submissions are now open!

Every year the Indie Writers’ Deathmatch receives tens of thousands of visits from readers all across the planet, determined to cast their vote, pen their comments and do anything they can to see their favourite story win. This time, with the stakes higher than ever, the battles are sure to be more savagely fought than ever before.

TOP PRIZE: A Complete Indie Writer’s Makeover!

This year the Deathmatch winner gets a complete indie writer’s makeover which includes a consultation with literary agent Sam Hiyate of the Rights Factory, a feedback session with novelist and The Globe and Mail columnist Russell Smith and a feedback session with Coach House Books, one of Canada’s top independent publishing houses. All this plus publication in Broken Pencil and $150 cash!

The top 3 runners-up get $100 and publication in Spring 2013 issue of Broken Pencil!

About the Deathmatch: Since 2008, Broken Pencil: the magazine of zine culture and the independent arts, has been running one of the world’s most audacious short story contests. In the Indie Writers’ Deathmatch, the top eight submitted stories as selected by Broken Pencil are pitted against each other two by two. Each week, two stories will be pitted against each other in the online arena, where anyone and everyone can read them and vote on which one deserves to reign supreme. The authors will be in constant communication with their audience through a blog which they can use to hype up their own story, or trash-talk their opponent’s writing. The winning story moves on to the next round until there are only two stories left, battling it out for ultimate victory! With over 25,000 votes cast, the Deathmatch is a high stakes struggle for literary bragging rights!

Deadline to enter: December 31, 2013

Hamilton, ON
OPENING AT ART CRAWL!  Friday November 8, 7-11PM 
Punk is everywhere. From malls to museums, the influence and imagery of punk’s past has largely been absorbed into mass culture. Despite this, contemporary DIY punk rock sits firmly outside of the mainstream, and at both regional and global levels is stronger than ever. The visual culture that surrounds it is variably dark, threatening, chaotic, smart, funny, mysterious and questioning.
Fear of Punk//Fear of Art highlights the creative output of current punk artists, bringing their work out of its usual context while exploring intersections between punk rock, art and print culture. The exhibition includes drawing, sculpture and printed matter that draws inspiration from horror, the occult, sex, despair, popular culture, comics, art history and urban life.

Cometbus & Ghost Pine in Toronto!

cometbus and ghost pine

Cometbus and Ghost Pine are coming to Toronto on November 19!
Readings and more. Full details TBA!

PWYC/ All ages

About Aaron Cometbus:

Aaron has been publishing his fanzine, Cometbus, since 1981. Originally a showcase for California basement punk bands, Cometbus grew with its editor to incorporate a whole range of contradictory qualities. Over the years, there have been audio issues, comics issues, sociological studies, and oral histories, but all with the same loving scrutiny of punk culture and other underground communities.

Cometbus is perhaps best known for Aaron’s own prose. He is also the author of several novels and short story collections published in the US and France. He has received no prizes, but was recently pleasantly surprised to find a sandwich named after him at a Virginia cafe.

Aaron lives in New York and is currently attempting career suicide by working on a collection of poetry.

About Jeff Miller:

Jeff Miller began writing and publishing the autobiographical Ghost Pine Fanzine in 1996 while growing up in suburban Ottawa. His first book, Ghost Pine: All Stories True, was published in 2010. He lives in Montreal and has given readings at punk shows and book stores across North America.

RSVP now!

Montreal event: Sun. Nov. 17
Hamilton event: Wed. Nov. 20
Ottawa event: Thurs. Nov. 21
