Colette Langlois of Edmonton is listed for The Emigrants, published in PRISM international – and J.R. McConvey of Toronto is in the running for How the Grizzly Came to Hang in the Royal Oak Hotel, published in Event.
Author James A. Michener donated his Canadian royalty earnings from his 1998 novel Journey – to make the prize possible.
The award goes to new and developing writers – for the best short story first published in a Canadian literary journal during the previous year.
