Overview

For twenty years, the CBC Canadian Literary Awards have recognized new and developing writers. In Emergent Voices, Robert Weaver, the godfather of the modern Canadian short story, presents twenty-seven prize-winning stories by authors including Michael Ondaatje, Ernst Havemann, Carol Shields, Shauna Singh Baldwin, Bill Gaston, Frances Itani, W.D. Valgardson, and Gail Anderson-Dargatz. Every selection is a stellar example of the story-writer's art. In 1979, Robert Weaver founded the Canadian Literary Awards, and he has organized the competition ever since. The CBC has shared sponsorship with various partners, including the Canada Council for the Arts and, since 1994, Saturday Night, which publishes the winning stories.
