Island launches nonfiction prize

Island magazine has launched a new nonfiction prize.

With support from the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund, the inaugural Island Nonfiction Prize will award the winner $3000, a subscription to Island and publication in the journal.

‘We want to read about what fascinates, excites or enrages you. Your entry doesn’t have to be zeitgeisty—there are so many ways to be curious and about so many things. We encourage you to investigate, experiment, wax lyrical and manifest,’ said Island nonfiction editor Anna Spargo-Ryan, who will judge the prize alongside journalists Rae Johnson and Sarah Ayoub.

The prize will be judged blind and costs $16.50 per entry. For details, see the Island website.
