Lit Pop Missed Connections

Here at Lit POP headquarters, we are always looking for fun and innovative ways to spread the word about our unique contest. The people simply must know about the opportunity to win a free trip to Montreal, get published in Matrix, and be the opening act for a pop legend at the POP Montreal International Music Festival. We believe it’s the best literary contest prize ever.

One of the most fun things we do to help spread the word is our Lit POP Missed Connections where we post actual missed connections on Craigslist. This year, we’ve received some hilarious responses! Check them out!

There’s less than three weeks to submit your stories or poems to Lit POP.

This year Lit POP boasts two of the best writers on the planet as our judges:

Eileen Myles: Poetry Judge
Sheila Heti: Fiction Judge
