The Lawrence Jackson Writers’ Award

The Lawrence Jackson Writers’ Award encourages and promotes original, creative thought in all genres of writing. It honours the memory of writer Lawrence Jackson. It is sponsored by his mother Frances Jackson, his wife Laura, his children Willow, Holly and Ben, with generous contributions from family and friends to the Lawrence Jackson Trust Fund.

The Lawrence Jackson Writers’ Award is administered by ArtsNL. All applicants to ArtsNL’s Professional Project Grants Program in the writing category are considered for the award. One award of $500 is given annually. The winner is chosen by a peer assessment committee.
