Canada Gets Women's Writing Prize
Canadians will get their very own Orange Prize. Born of a panel at the Vancouver's Writers Fest, the Rosalind Prize for Fiction will celebrate women writers in Canada. Janice Zawerbny is the midwife, taking a conversation about the state of women's writing in Canada and putting it into action, with the first prize to be awarded in 2014. Read more thoughts on the Orange and Rosalind prizes at Pickle Me This, where Kerry also provides links to her own thoughts about gender inequity in Canadian writing and awards.
