That’s why Word Alive Press Publishing Contest is such a Godsend to the Canadian Christian writing community – it gives Christian writers the opportunity to have their work read by professional editors. In an industry geared towards writers who already have a proven track record, it’s exciting to know that anyone can enter and anyone can win.”

Canadians Have Stories to Share
Word Alive Press truly wants more Canadians to share their stories of faith with the world. Says Jeremy Braun, President of Word Alive Press, “After more than twenty-three years of distributing Christian resources to Canada, we are thrilled with the growth we see in Canadian writers expressing their faith through talented writing. As a Canadian publisher, we are committed to placing quality, Canadian Christian books into the market. Our writers contest has grown rapidly over the past eight years and it’s very rewarding to see hundreds of Canadian writers send in manuscripts with hopes of winning the grand prize of being published. We look forward to reading this year’s inspired works!”
