What you can win
First prize in each competition is $6,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts. The winning text will be published in Air Canada’s enRoute magazine and on the Canada Writes website.

Four runner-ups will each receive $1,000 from the Canada Council for the Arts and will have their text published on the Canada Writes website.

Writers have been polishing their words at The Banff Centre in the heart of the Canadian Rockies since the 1930s. The Centre is a hot-bed of creativity, providing time, tools, and mentor-ship for the creation of new work in all artistic disciplines. The Centre’s varied Literary Arts programs are led by some of Canada’s top writers, including Ian Brown, Daphne Marlatt, Nino Ricci, and Fred Wah — Canada’s Parliamentary Poet Laureate. Writers, emerging and seasoned, gain input and inspiration in a retreat setting. Programs are offered in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, digital literature and innovative forms, and spoken word.
