After taking a break in 2016, the Dave Greber Freelance Writers Awards are back this year. Submissions for the 2017 awards opened this week.

Created in 2004 in the memory of freelance writer Dave Greber, the awards are given to writers of social justice-related non-fiction. There are two awards — one for books and one for magazines. The book award is for $5000 and the magazine award is for $2000. Work that has not yet been completed for publication is also eligible for submission.

Applicants must be residents of Canada and spend 70% of their working time as self-employed freelance writers in order to be eligible for the awards.

The closing date for submissions is Friday June 16, 2017 at 5:00 P.M. PST.

Check out the Dave Greber Freelance Writers Awards submission guidelines for more information or to submit your work for an award.
