More About The Kroetsch Award
The Robert Kroetsch Award for Innovative Poetry is a prize awarded annually for the best poetry manuscript by an emerging Canadian writer (a writer who has published fewer than two books). Each year the winning manuscript is selected by an established poet in cooperation with Invisible Publishing’s Snare imprint. (This year’s judge is Karen Solie!)
The winner receives a trade book contract with Invisible Publishing. Their work is published and promoted under the Snare imprint, and they receive a $500.00 advance.
