The anthology that presents the finalists from the Gloria Vanderbilt-sponsored national short fiction competition, one that awards $10,000 to the best story by an Emerging Writer and $5,000 to a Writer at Any Career Point.

From writer, artist and philanthropist, Gloria Vanderbilt, who sponsors one of the largest literary prizes in Canada, and who supports this unique Canadians-only short fiction publication. "I am proud and thrilled that all these wonderful writers are presented in the CVC Anthology. Carter, my son, Anderson Cooper’s brother, was just 23 when he died in 1988. He was a promising editor, writer, and, from the time he was a small child, a voracious reader. When a child dies, just as his adult life is beginning, in addition to the overwhelming grief, his family and friends are left with many unanswerable questions. I often wonder what would he be doing? What kind of man would he have become? If Carter were alive he would be 50 years old now. Some things are not knowable, of course, but I do know Carter would still be in love with writing, with words, and with stories. Carter came from a family of storytellers, and stories were a guide which helped him discover the world. Though I, and those who loved Carter, still hear his voice in our heads and in our hearts, my sonšs voice was silenced long ago. I hope this prize helps other writers find their voice, and helps them touch others’ lives with the mystery and magic of the written word."

This volume presents the 14 short listed writers: Nicholas Ruddock, Leon Rooke, Hugh Graham, Jane Eaton Hamilton, Bruce Meyer, Priscila Uppal, Veronica Gaylie, Christine Miscione, Lisa Foad, Maggie Dwyer, Josip Novakovich, Bart Campbell, Lisa Pike and Linda Roger
