mandate to encourage creativity and craft in the literary arts in the Northwest Territories. Each year, the Yellowknife festival, with the help of its dedicated sponsors, honours the best in northern and aboriginal writing. (See Trio Awarded Northwords Prize, page15). Along with providing a venue for readings where northern authors share the stage with established and successful Canadian authors, the festival also hosts workshops and mentorships and gives the general public an opportunity to learn more about the joys of books, reading and putting the written word to paper. Each year, as part of the Festival activities, NorthWords holds its Great Northern Canada Writing Contest, awarding cash prizes (courtesy of De Beers Canada) for the First Place entry, selected by the organization’s judges, and also a special Emerging Writers prize to recognize a new previously unpublished writer.


In our role as NorthWords sponsors, the Festival’s official


airline, First Air, The Airline of the North, and above&beyond, CANADA’S ARCTIC JOURNAL, carry on the annual tradition of sharing the winning entrants stories with our many readers.
