Awards to Newfoundland and Labrador unpublished authors to recognize and support the development of literary works. The purpose of this award is to provide an incentive for emerging authors through cash prizes, recognition, as well as professional editing for a book-length manuscript in any genre.
The Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador (WANL) in partnership with the Literary Arts Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador is calling for submissions to one of the country’s most lucrative literary awards for unpublished writers: the Newfoundland and Labrador Credit Union Fresh Fish Award for Emerging Writers.
Assessment of all eligible submissions to the Fresh fish Award will be adjudicated by an independent jury recruited and facilitated by the Writers’ Alliance of Newfoundland and Labrador. The independent jury will submit a shortlist of three books and a winning book from that shortlist.
The paramount consideration is excellence in writing. Jurors should reflect on creativity, wordsmithery, and originality.
