[Complete submission information for all five Awards administered by the Writers Federation of Nova Scotia is available here

The Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia manages five literary awards that are awarded during the Atlantic Book Awards gala, including the Thomas Raddall Atlantic Fiction Award, valued at $30,000 for the winning title. Established with the ongoing support from the Raddall family of Liverpool, Nova Scotia, this award honours the work of fiction writers in the Atlantic region and, as the family 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 (link: ) to submit and see a list of past winners.
