*CWC announces the Lou Allin Memorial Award of $200 for the Arthur Ellis Novella Category
Sponsored by the 2011 Bloody Words Conference Committee, this award will be given in honour of Lou Allin. Lou was a board member of CWC, a co-chair of the 2011 Bloody Words Conference, an award-winning writer, and a mentor to many. This award is particularly fitting, as she was the winner of the first Arthur Ellis Novella Award. We miss you dearly, Lou.
Many thanks to artist and CWC member Don Graves for donating a Canadian landscape painting as a prize for Best Novel.
