Call for Jurors: 2021 Alberta Literary Awards

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 2021 finalists and winners are chosen. Every year the WGA presents awards in eight categories, plus the Calgary and Edmonton book prizes, 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 Nonfiction story
  • Unpublished Essay
  • Children’s Picture Book
  • Plays
  • City book prizes

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, category preference, and what makes you a good candidate.
