We are particularly proud of the annual Canadian Literature Student Award (est. 2005), which awards an Arts Co-op student a one-year paid editorial internship at our journal. This award allows Canadian Literature to financially support Arts students and give them the opportunity to enhance their knowledge of Canadian literature, and to acquire practical experience in publishing, research, editing, and writing. The award helps us nurture and mentor upcoming young editors with a special expertise in the field of Canadian literature and publishing. Recently, this award has been expanded to assist graduate students who are working on CanLit Guides, an online teaching and learning resource. CanLit Guides allows graduate students the opportunity to develop and edit content in a collaborative environment and receive feedback from professors and editors in the field.
