WT Awards winners 2015 Cr Tom Sandler

The 2015 Writers’ Trust Awards, a celebration of the year’s best books and Canada’s supreme literary talents, took place on November 3 at CBC's Glenn Gould Studio. One of Canada’s richest awards nights, the evening features the presentation of six literary prizes and $139,000, including the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize.

The evening was hosted by author and journalist Elizabeth Renzetti. A national columnist with The Globe and Mail, Renzetti published her first novel, Based on a True Story, with House of Anansi Press last year.

The Writers’ Trust Awards are made possible through generous support from corporate, foundation, and individual sponsors.

The 2016 Writers' Trust Awards event will be held on November 2, 2016, at the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto. Finalists for the awards will be announced in late September.
