$2000 Short Fiction Competition
For our Asian friends in Canada:

Gloria Vanderbilt, American author, actress, designer, artist and heiress will be in Toronto on the evening of Saturday, March 13, to announce the establishment of an annual short fiction prize for emerging Canadian writers. Ms Vanderbilt will be the host reader at An Evening with an Author/Artist, an advance ticket only event to be held at Toronto’s prestigious Turf Lounge on Bay Street.

Ms Vanderbilt, who has two short stories and a suite of paintings in a recent issue of Exile: The Literary Quarterly (33.3), will announce a prize of $2000 for short fiction, open to any and all emerging Canadian writers, a prize to be awarded for the first time in April of 2011 under the auspices of Exile in memory of her son, Carter V. Cooper. The winner of the prize - to be chosen from among a group of finalists by Ms Vanderbilt - will be presented annually. Each year, the finalists’ stories are to be published in an anthology, by Exile Editions, and released the day of the prize announcement.

Further information about the prize will be posted in April.
