The Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia encourages all writers in Atlantic Canada to explore their talents by sending in new, unpublished work to any of six categories, including the Joyce Barkhouse Writing for Children Prize and the Young Adult Novel Prize. To ensure impartiality of the judges, each writer is asked to choose a pseudonym or pen name.
