The Writers’ Trust of Canada is delighted to announce the finalists for a literary award with a proven track record of identifying the country’s most promising young writers.
The RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers rewards writers who are unpublished in book form and under the age of thirty-five. Alternating each year between poetry and short fiction, this year’s award will be given for an outstanding work of fiction. The RBC Foundation supports the prize through the RBC Emerging Artists Project, which invests in up-and-coming artists to help build their professional careers. The winner will be announced the evening of May 2, 2012 and awarded a $5,000 cash prize, with the other two finalists receiving $1,000 each.
