Please join us this year for our silver anniversary, as we celebrate 25 years of Awards.
We'll look back and celebrate the many who have received major awards over this time. Then we'll celebrate current writing.
The premier national event held June 12, 2013, honours excellence in Canadian writers who are Christian. At this event we will honour our unpublished Fresh Ink Winners, our published winners in 34 categories and we will announce the $5000 Grace Irwin Prize winner. There will be a stand-up reception following the awards ceremony.
Looking for a wonderful night of celebration? Come join us at The Word Awards Gala, June 12, 2013, the night before the Write! Canada conference. The Gala is held at World Vision Canada headquarters at 1 World Drive, Mississauga, Ontario (one light north of Highway 401, just off Hurontario Street).
The premier national event honouring Canadian writers who are Christian will present awards for outstanding career achievement, and for the best novels, non-fiction books, articles, poems and song lyrics published in 2012.
The evening will include a catered reception following the awards presentation. Meet many of your writing colleagues, fellow members of The Word Guild and Write! Canada registrants, as well as applaud and support our best writers.
This is a black-tie event, so we are requesting tuxedos or dark suits with ties for men, formal or semi-formal wear for women. (However, don’t let wardrobe concerns keep you away, especially if you're packing light or coming from a distance; just wear your best outfit!)
Everyone is warmly invited to attend—members of the public, friends and relatives of the awards finalists, Write! Canada registrants, booksellers, librarians, aspiring writers and more. If you're coming to Write! Canada, you can order a ticket at the same time as you register for Write! Canada. Order additional tickets for family or friends at the same time.
Prices: members of The Word Guild – $20; non-members – $25; at the door – $25 for everyone.
