Manitoba Book Awards

The Manitoba Book Awards is an annual awards gala co-produced by the Manitoba Writers' Guild and the Association of Manitoba Book Publishers. Brave New Words is the grand finale to Manitoba Book Week, usually at the end of each April.

The awards honour the best writing and publishing talent across a diverse number of categories. The premiere prize of the gala is the McNally Robinson Book of the year award, a $5000 prize to the best English language work of fiction, poetry or non-fiction written for adults. In all, fourteen awards and over $30,000 are given to deserving Manitoba Writers every year.

Nominees and winners are selected by jurors drawn from across Manitoba and Canada.

The Manitoba Writers’ Guild formed in 1981 to promote writing throughout Manitoba, and remains committed to providing personal and professional support to writers at any level in their careers, and enhancing the province’s literary community.
