new prize for non-fiction: Charles Taylor Foundation

One of Canada’s biggest nonfiction prizes, The Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction, has been renamed the RBC Taylor Prize and is adding a new prize for an emerging writer.

The name change signals an integrated approach between [Canadian bank] RBC and the Charles Taylor Foundation, enabling the prize to expand its recognition of excellence to emerging literary non-fiction writers.”

The new C$10,000 Emerging Writer’s Award will be awarded annually to a literary nonfiction writer between the ages of 18 to 35. According to the announcement from prize organizers, the recipient will be chosen by each year’s RBC Taylor Prize winner and will reflect that author’s wish to champion their chosen writer.
