The shortlist for the Rogers Writers’ Trust Prize for Fiction were announced today at a press conference held at Ben McNally Books in Toronto. The shortlist for the Journey Prize, which recognizes short stories by emerging Canadian writers, was also announced at the event.
In her introductory remarks on the prize, Writers’ Trust Executive Director Mary Osborne noted that many writers who have made the shortlist over the years have gone on to long and illustrious careers.
To facilitate discovery and ordering of the five titles nominated for the prize, BookNet has put together an online catalogue on CataList.
