Overview

This is the fourteenth edition of The Journey Prize Anthology, which has established itself as Canada’s most popular fiction anthology, presenting the best new Canadian writers. As well as receiving high praise every year, it is an important indicator of up-and-coming writers. Past winners such as Elyse Gasco, Cynthia Flood, Yann Martel, and Timothy Taylor, and many others whose stories have appeared in the anthology, such as André Alexis, David Bergen, Dennis Bock, Douglas Glover, Terry Griggs, Elizabeth Hay, Steven Heighton, Mark Anthony Jarman, Thomas King, Elise Levine, Madeleine Thien, and M.G. Vassanji, have gone on to single themselves out with collections of stories or novels, and have been shortlisted for and won some of Canada’s most prestigious literary awards.

This fiction anthology sets itself apart from others in that editors of literary journals across the country are invited to submit what, in their view, is the most accomplished writing in English that they have published in the previous year. The final selection to appear in the anthology will be made this year from a total of 82 stories.
