2016 marks the twelfth year of the Dave Greber Freelance Writers Book and Magazine Awards. The importance of freelance writers working in the area of social justice and an informed reading public remains as great as ever. We believe the awards remain a relevant,valuable contributor to that dynamic in the Canadian context.
The purpose of a sabbatical is to take time out of the usual pattern to reflect and review. In the changing landscape of how and where information is distributed, we thought it time to take a break and evaluate how best to keep the awards meaningful, current and most importantly growing in terms of both funding and awareness.
We are sorry for the interruption and the inconvenience to Canadian freelance writers and to everyone who is a friend of the awards but we intend to be back in 2017, more effective and more beneficial than ever. We will be in touch.
