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. This award is made possible by James A. Michener’s generous donation of his Canadian royalty earnings from his novelJourney, published by McClelland & Stewart in 1988. The winner, selected by a three-member, independent judging panel, is announced at the Writers’ Trust Awards event. For more information about the prize visit the McClelland & Stewart website.
