BC and Yukon Book Prize money increases

The BC and Yukon Book Prizes have made changes to the prize program for 2020, including two new categories: the return of the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence and the Jim Deva Prize for Writing That Provokes.

The prize for all existing awards will also be increased by $1,000 each, to $3,000, reflecting the dedication and impact award recipients have made to literature across western Canada. 

The seven existing prize categories cover fiction, non-fiction, poetry and children’s literature.
