Before everyone shifts into summer mode and takes off on vacation, we wanted to update you on our literary awards announcements.

Thirty lucky people will find their names on the longlist for the CBC’s Creative Nonfiction Prize on the morning of Tuesday, June 25. Will you be among them? There's only three weeks left until you find out!

We will then announce the shortlist on Monday, July 8. As of that date, the country will have the chance to read all five stories up for their prize and share their thoughts.

The competition will wrap with the Grand Prize winner announcement on Monday, July 25 at 12 pm ET.

So stay tuned to Canada Writes this summer!

And if you are looking for a fun way to distract yourself until the announcements are made, check out our Caption This Comic challenge.


To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.
