With these four wins, the Malahat swept the fiction category, took the top prize in poetry, and won its first National Magazine Award in a non-fiction category. This year, it was among the top six magazines for the number of wins, sharing the spotlight with The Walrus, Toronto Life, Explore, enRoute, and Swerve. A year ago, Tibbetts’ story also won the Malahat’s prestigious Novella Prize and last winter, Yanofsky’s article won the magazine’s Creative Non-Fiction Prize.Malahat writers also received three honourable mentions in this year’s Awards:
With these latest commendations, Malahat has won thirteen gold and ten silver National Magazine Awards and has received forty-three honourable mentions since the Awards were established in 1977. The magazine has been nominated for, and also won, more NMAs than any other literary journal in Canada.
Again, congratulations to all our authors!
