Liminal, Pantera establish $10,000 nonfiction prize

Liminal magazine and Pantera Press have announced a new nonfiction writing prize for First Nations writers and writers of colour.

The winner of the Liminal & Pantera Press Nonfiction Prize receives $10,000 and the runner-up receives $2000. Along with the longlisted writers, who each receive $300, the winner and runner-up will be published in an anthology to be released in 2022.

The inaugural prize is open to work of up to 4000 words addressing the theme of ‘archive’, with entries to be judged by Brian Castro, Maddee Clark and Shakira Hussein.

The nonfiction prize follows the success of the 2019 Liminal Fiction Prize and the resultant anthology Collisions, which Pantera acquired and published in 2020.

Entries to the Liminal & Pantera Press Nonfiction Prize open 1 May. For more information, see the Liminal website.
