7 things winning a CBC Literary Prize can do for your writing career

2. You hear yourself on CBC Radio (and meet Shelagh Rogers!)

Shelagh Rogers and her show, The Next Chapter, have been wonderful supporters of the literary prizes for years now. Shelagh often has our winners on to talk about their work. It’s quite something to meet our country’s most beloved literary champion, not to mention hearing your own conversation sandwiched between ones with George Elliott Clarke and Margaret Atwood. Sometimes your story is also recorded for national broadcast, like our 2013 Creative Nonfiction winner. Mohan Srivastava got to record his own story for an national broadcast on As it Happens.
