We're excited to announce that we'll be co-selecting the shortlist for a new manuscript competition, the Whistler Independent Book Prize.
Launched to complement the Whistler Independent Book Awards (WIBA) for self-published Canadian authors, the new manuscript competition is open to all Canadian writers who have an original, unpublished work of fiction or non-fiction. The winner will have their book independently published with full expert support, including professional editing, design, and production services, 100 printed copies, and a full book launch at the 2017 Whistler Writers Festival, October 11-15, 2017.
For more information, and to submit your manuscript, visit tidewaterfestival.com
And, stay tuned for details on WIBA 2017 (opening March 1), an annual award that recognizes excellence in Canadian fiction and non-fiction indie books that have been published within the last six years.
