About the Prize

The Journey Prize is made possible by James A. Michener’s donation of his Canadian royalty earnings from his 1998 novel Journey. The award annually recognizes emerging writers for the best short story first published in a Canadian literary journal. Each Journey Prize finalist receives $1,000, the prizewinner receives a total of $10,000, and the journal that originally published the winning entry receives $2,000. In association with the prize, McClelland & Stewart publishes The Journey Prize Stories anthology, a collection of the stories that form the longlist for the prize.
