About the Prize

The Writers’ Trust / McClelland & Stewart Journey Prize is awarded annually to a new and developing writer of distinction for a short story published in a Canadian literary publication. The winner is selected by a three-member, independent judging panel. The award is made possible by James A. Michener’s generous donation of his Canadian royalty earnings from his novel Journey, published by McClelland & Stewart in 1988. The 2015 prize winner will be announced on Novermber 3 at the Writers’ Trust Awards
