The Cedric Literary Awards for Writers 50+

Apr 15, 2016
Building on the success of last year’s inaugural Cedric Literary Awards, B.C. writers “of a certain age” are once again being encouraged to submit their unpublished works of fiction, creative non‐fiction, and poetry to this year’s competition.

The awards program, the first of its kind in Canada, invites unpublished B.C. writers aged “50 and better” to submit their work between February 1 and May 1, 2016. In its first year, the Cedric Literary Awards received 168 submissions from writers across the province. “The Cedrics” accepts manuscripts in English and French, in three main categories: fiction, creative non‐fiction, and poetry. The winner in each category receives a $3,000 award. There is an additional prize of $3,000 for First Nations writers.
