Saskatchewan Book Awards have announced their winners for 2021.
The shortlist for the $10,000 prize will be announced in August.

The honour is presented to “an individual or group who is not a member of ACP, but has made a significant contribution to the association and to the Canadian publishing industry.”
This is the seventh year the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize has been presented.
Winners in nine categories received a total of $39,000.
“Small in the City is an evocative and immersive book which tells quite an ordinary story in such an extraordinary way that it surprises you,” said Ellen Krajewski, chair of the 2021 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal judging panel.
Two prizes are awarded annually in the categories of unpublished poetry and short fiction.
