Seeking donations! The Herb Wyile Prize in Canadian Literature

 

Studies in Canadian Literature/Études en littérature canadienne is working to establish a Canadian Literature prize in honour of Herb Wyile (see the description below). As many gathered in Wolfville for a memorial service that brought together family, friends, and colleagues from Acadia and elsewhere, our talk naturally turned to ways that we could honour a colleague who was known for both his collegiality and scholarship. A Canadian literature prize in Herb’s name seemed like a fitting memorial.

The journal is seeking donations from friends and colleagues to endow a fund that will make this prize possible. The University of New Brunswick, where SCL/ÉLC is published and where Herb did his PhD, will administer the prize, which will be awarded annually to the best essay published in SCL/ÉLC over the previous calendar year. In order to make a $500 annual prize a reality, we need to raise $13,000. The first $5000 in donations will be matched, dollar for dollar, by SCL/ÉLC itself. All donors will receive a charitable receipt. As you may know, Herb was an exceptionally generous colleague to so many of us; we are hoping that our community can come together in memory of Herb to make this prize possible.

You may support The Herb Wyile Prize in Canadian Literature by donating online or by mailing a contribution to our offices in Saint John or Fredericton. For your convenience, you may access Herb’s memorial by following this link.

Please join with me and others in making a gift to help establish this lasting tribute to our colleague and friend. Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,
Cynthia Sugars
Editor, SCL/ÉLC
