Established in 2021 through an endowment by Claire Kramer, the Glengarry Book Award is a $20,000 (CAD) prize awarded for the first edition of an English novel or book of short fiction.


The Glengarry Book Award is inspired by and contributes to the province of Saskatchewan’s rich literary culture. It is open to established professional writers of fiction with a significant body of published work, recognition and awards. Authors must describe their connection to Saskatchewan (e.g., whether born in the province, currently living there, or developed a career while residing there) and be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
