The Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award (WFNS)

The Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia manages three literary awards that are awarded  during the Atlantic Book Awards gala, including the Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award, valued at $25,000 for the winning title. Established with an endowment by Thomas Head Raddall himself, and with ongoing support from the Raddall family, this award honours the work of fiction writers in the Atlantic region and, as the original benefactor envisioned, provides “the gift of time and peace of mind” so essential to the creation of new work.

The Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award was first presented in 1991: please visit the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia webpage for this Award to see a list of past winners.
