The Micheline Simard Short Story Contest is a tribute to a passionate colleague who created the contest in 2002. She was so passionate, in fact, that she endowed the prize herself. After Micheline left us in 2007, OTTIAQ decided to carry on her initiative by keeping the name of the contest founder and awarding a prize of $150 each year to a winner.
The short stories are submitted to a bilingual five-member jury panel. The odd number of jury members will ensure there will be no tie.
Otherwise, you have a free hand!
