The Writers’ Trust of Canada has announced a new $75.000 prize for international authors who have penned non-fiction works.
The Weston International Award will honour a non-Canadian author’s body of work.
The new award is to be a companion to the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Nonfiction which is given annually to a Canadian author for a single work of non-fiction.
To be eligible for the international award, authors must have published at least three non-fiction books that are widely available in English.
A three-person international advisory committee will develop a long list. A five-person Canadian jury will whittle that down to a single winner.
