TORONTO -- Publishing house House of Anansi has launched a Broken Social Scene-inspired short fiction contest to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Arts & Crafts record label.
Interested writers must create a piece of short fiction using one of the 13 songs from the hit Broken Social Scene album You Forgot It In People as either the title or theme of the story.
The 2002 album launched Arts & Crafts and won the on-hiatus Toronto indie-rock collective a Juno Award for alternative album of the year.
Contest submissions will be juried by House of Anansi senior editor Jared Bland.
Finalists will be judged by Bland as well as Broken Social Scene members Brendan Canning, Leslie Feist and Charles Spearin.
Toronto-based Anansi will accept submissions electronically through March 29, and 13 finalists will be announced on May 24.
