New Voices Award

Do you have dreams of being a published author? Do you have no idea how to get your manuscript into the hands of the right people? Enter the FAN EXPO Vancouver x Dundurn Press New Voices Award!  

This new initiative created by Canada’s leading independent book publisher Dundurn Press in conjunction with FAN EXPO, Canada’s largest pop culture event producer  will go to a Canadian author who has yet to publish their first book!



How it works

Dundurn Press is seeking one English-language book-length manuscript, fiction or nonfiction (no poetry or books for children)

The Dundurn Press / Fan Expo New Voices Award competition is open to any Canadian resident eighteen years of age or over who has not previously published a book-length work.

In addition to publication and promotion of the winning manuscript by Dundurn Press, the winning author will receive a prize of $1000 as well as a VIP pass to Fan Expo Vancouver 2024.

Please send your submission to submissions@dundurn.com by May 1, 2023
