Do you dream of making it big as a writer? If so, you should take the plunge and enter the CBC Literary Prizes! The grand prize is $6,000, publication in Air Canada enRoute magazine and a 10-day writers’ residency at the Banff Centre, but that’s not all you’ll get. Winning will set you on a path to literary greatness. Here’s proof.

1. You get front page exposure

Imagine waking up one morning to see your mug on the front page of the Arts section of your city’s daily newspaper. You’ll become a star overnight.

2. You hear yourself on CBC Radio

Past winners have been featured on CBC Radio shows like The Next Chapter and As It Happens. Maybe you’ll be interviewed between literary heavyweights like George Elliott Clarke and Margaret Atwood. Or maybe you’ll even get to read your story on air for a national audience.
