For more than twenty-five years, The Journey Prize Stories has been Canada’s most celebrated annual fiction anthology and a who’s who of up-and-coming writers.

Praise for The Journey Prize Stories: • "The collection consistently does what the oeuvre does best: communicate intense emotion with force, give life to characters that struggle with their circumstances, illuminate the universal through the specific and the particular, and turn the commonplace into art." Globe and Mail • "A quarter century of great work has gone onto the pages of Journey Prize anthologies. Canadian Literature is flat-out lucky to have such an institution." Alexander MacLeod
