Members, here's a reminder for your publishers regarding these three Atlantic awards with a November 1 deadline: the J.M. Abraham Atlantic Poetry Award, the Ann Connor Brimer Award for Atlantic Canadian Literature, and the Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award.

The Brimer Award alternates between YA and children’s books – this year we are looking for children’s books.

Speaking of the Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award, the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia will hold a special event in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the award. The Zoom event features readings by Anne Simpson, Don Hannah, John Steffler, Lisa Moore, Linda Little and Michael Crummey. Alexander MacLeod will be the host.

As well, Thomas Raddall III will be making a special announcement at the event. Yay – I love drama!

It takes place on Thursday, Sept. 23, 7:30 pm (Atlantic) on Zoom. Here’s the link to register:
