Journey Prize Stories: Short Fiction from the Best of Canada's New Writers # 15
McClelland & Stewart
This is the fifteenth edition of The Journey Prize Anthology, retitled The Journey Prize Stories. It has established itself as Canada's most popular fiction anthology, presenting the best new Canadian writers from coast to coast. As well as receiving high praise every year, it is an important indicator of up-and-coming writers. Past winners include Yann Martel, Elyse Gasco, Cynthia Flood, Alissa York, Kevin Armstrong, and Timothy Taylor. These writers and many others whose stories have appeared in the anthology - such as André Alexis, David Bergen, Dennis Bock, Terry Griggs, Elizabeth Hay, Steven Heighton, Elise Levine, Annabel Lyon, Lisa Moore, Nancy Richler, Madeleine Thien, and M.G. Vassanji - have gone on to single themselves out with novels or collections, and have won many of Canada's most prestigious literary awards.
This fiction anthology sets itself apart from others in that editors of literary journals across the country submit what, in their view, is the most exciting writing in English that they have published in the previous year.
The winner of the $10,000 Writers' Trust of Canada/McClelland & Stewart Journey Prize, and the journal which published the winning piece, will be announced in the spring of 2004 as part of The Writers' Trust of Canada's Great Literary Awards event.
