2018 Dave Greber Awards open for submissions

Freelance writers, if you’ve focused your work on social justice issues this year, it’s time to apply for the Dave Greber Freelance Writers Awards. The competition opened this week and the submissions deadline is Friday, June 22 at 5 p.m. PST

The awards honour the memory of Dave Greber, a Calgary-based freelancer who wrote extensively about social justice issues during the final decade of his career. Created in 2004, the awards are given to writers of social justice-related non-fiction. There are two awards — a $5000 prize for a book and a $2000 prize for a magazine feature. Work that has not yet been completed for publication is also eligible for submission.

To submit your work for a Dave Greber Award, you must be a resident of Canada and spend 70% of your working time as a self-employed freelance writer.

Detailed submission guidelines can be found on the awards website.

Several previous Dave Greber Freelance Writers Award winners have been interviewed for Story Board. You can read their advice for writers right here.
