Cedric Literary Awards Call for Submissions

edric Literary Awards is a first-of-its-kind literary awards program in Canada for writers age 50 years of age or older

Feb. 1 marked the official start of the 2015 Cedric Literary Awards, with a formal call for submissions from previously unpublished B.C. authors and First Nations storytellers, age 50 or better.

The Cedric Literary Awards is a first-of-its-kind literary awards program in Canada, created specifically to recognize unpublished B.C. writers of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and First Nations storytelling.

“As the creator of the Cedric Literary Awards, I encourage all unpublished BC writers in the 50-plus demographic to dust off manuscripts that may have been languishing on bookshelves for far too long. The time has finally come to showcase those literary gems,” said Peter Dale, the awards’ founder.

Once all of the submissions are in, they will be forwarded to an independent selection panel made up of members who are recognized in B.C. and beyond in the fields of writing and publishing.

Submissions must be post-marked no later than May 1.
