The Ville de Sherbrooke’s Grand Prix du livre:
Celebrating literature!
To the delight of arts and literature enthusiasts, literature will
be honoured once again in 2016. This past November, for the
26th year, the Ville de Sherbrooke invited writers to participate in
the Grand Prix du livre. This biennial event highlights works by
exceptional Sherbrooke writers, which stand out because of their
originality, their artistic value, and their quality of expression.
Writers have until July 1, 2016 to submit their works in one of the
two following categories: creative writing or essay. The award for
the creative writing category recognizes the excellence of a work
for adult readers, in the form of a story, a novel of any kind, a poem,
a play, or a novella. The award for the essay section recognizes the
excellence of a work written from a social science or humanities
perspective, or a combination of the two categories.
The Association des auteures et auteurs de l’Estrie (AAAE) is a
member of the organizing committee and will contribute its
expertise in literature to assist members of the jury in evaluating
the works. All jury members are recognized professionals working
in the field of literature (creative writing section) or in the social
sciences, humanities, or other relevant fields (essay section).
The winner of the Ville de Sherbrooke’s 2016 Grand Prix du livre in
each of the two categories will win a prize of $4000. The finalist in
second place in each of the two categories will receive a prize of
$1300, and the finalist in third place in each of the two categories
will receive a prize of $700. Works published between July 1, 2014
