2022 Alberta Literary Awards Call for Jurors

Deadline: November 30

The Writers’ Guild of Alberta is calling all avid readers, writers, teachers, students, or people who just straight up love literature to join our awards jury this season. This is an opportunity to be “in the room” when the 2022 finalists and winners are chosen. Every year the WGA presents awards in eight categories and we could not do this without the hard work and deliberation of our juries.

You would make a great juror if you:

  • Are fair and judicious
  • Love to read
  • Work well with others
  • Like free books

We have openings on the jury for:

  • Fiction and Nonfiction Books
  • Poetry Book
  • Short Story
  • Short Non-Fiction story
  • Unpublished Essay
  • Children’s Chapter Book
  • Plays
  • City Book Prizes

This year also features two new categories:

  • Short story collection
  • Memoir

All jurors are paid an honorarium for their help with this process. All materials will be received by mid-January and final decisions need to be made by early April. If you are interested in serving as a juror this year, please contact [email protected] and let him know where in Canada you currently reside and what category you are most interested in. If you have previous experience serving on a literary prize jury, please let us know.

We will only be contacting those who have been selected to serve on juries.
