STONE CANOE PRIZES FOR WRITERS & ARTISTS

 

Each year, Stone Canoe offers prizes to emerging writers and artists, made possible through the generosity of our donors and supporters. Winners receive $500.

There is no entry fee or alternate submission process required; all works by emerging artists are considered for the prizes in their genre. For the purposes of these awards, writers are considered "emerging" if they have not yet published a full-length book of work; we consider an artist "emerging" if they have neither published a book nor had a solo show at a major institution.

Our prizes depend on the generosity of sponsors; it is possible that awards may be altered or canceled if a sponsor is not available. For 2018's issue, we currently anticipate prizes in poetry, nonfiction, and visual art.
