Journey Prize Stories 27
One of North America's most celebrated annual fiction anthologies, The Journey Prize Stories has become a virtual who's who of up-and-coming writers, presenting the best short stories published each year by some of Canada's best new writers. Previous contributors -- including such now well-known, bestselling writers as Yann Martel, Heather O'Neill, Michael Crummey, Emma Donoghue, Elizabeth Hay, Pasha Malla, Lisa Moore, and M.G. Vassanji -- have gone on to win prestigious literary awards and honours, including the Booker Prize, the Giller Prize, the Governor General's Award, and CBC's Canada Reads competition. The stories included in the anthology are contenders for the $10,000 Journey Prize, which is made possible by Pulitzer Prize-winning author James A. Michener's donation of Canadian royalties from his novel Journey. The 2015 winner will be announced by the Writers' Trust of Canada on November 3, 2015.
