ReLit Awards Could Face Final Year

The ReLit Awards, now in their fourteenth year, will come to an end this year should a funder not be found for the ReLit rings.

The ReLit Awards, founded by Newfoundland author and filmmaker, Kenneth J Harvey, are considered Canada's "pre-eminent literary prize recognizing independent presses."

The ReLit rings, made with four moveable dials, each stamped with the entire alphabet for spelling words, are crafted by Newfoundland goldsmith, Christopher Kearney.

For the past few years, the three rings were funded by an anonymous donor. However, the donor is no longer in a position to continue supporting the ReLits.

The ReLit Awards are seeking a new anonymous donor and/or donations from publishers in order to ensure that these awards continue.
