Penguin Random House of Canada
Student Award for Fiction
For thirteen years the School of Continuing Studies has offered this annual fiction contest for students in our Creative Writing program, with the valued support from Penguin Random House Canada. The School of Continuing Studies would like to thank Penguin Random House Canada for establishing this award and for bolstering their commitment to emerging writers; in 2012 Penguin Random House Canada pledged to double their current endowment over five years.
As part of the award, Penguin Random House Canada produces a beautiful chapbook, Three (PDF), featuring the works of the top three finalists. We are proud of the many of the winners and finalists over the years who have gone on to be published and gain audiences here and abroad.
