What does soccer mean to you? What does it mean to Canada? We want to read your stories — and share the cream of the crop with our community of readers.
Great soccer journalism is part reporting, part analysis all bound together by wonderful writing. And we want to celebrate the craft with our first-ever open call for submissions. We want authentic, lively essays about the game in Canada. Your submission can be about playing the game in Canada, supporting the game in Canada or the struggle of trying to advance the game in Canada. Historical pieces are fine, too. We want to see great creative non-fiction.
E-mail submissions to email@example.com. The winning submission will be published on the site in June and the author will receive an honorarium of $150. And, we’ll make that essay look good. The winning entry will feature illustrations from famed Canadian soccer artist Eugene Abrams (CLICK HERE for more on Eugene). The deadline to enter is noon MT, May 15, 2013. UPDATED:DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 23
