The West Coast Book Prize Society continues to grow as we head into 2020 and beyond.

Exciting new opportunities means that we are ready to invite applications for new Board members with governance and fundraising expertise.

We specifically require Board members who possess legal expertise and fundraising/financial acumen to help strengthen our governance, strategic decision making and ability to support the society’s programs.

As well, the board members’ commitment, passion and vision for promoting the achievements of the book community in British Columbia and Yukon are essential.

The BC and Yukon Book Prizes recognize excellence in the books produced by BC and Yukon writers and creators.  By joining our board, you will help communicate the message that the literary creativity in BC is not only some of the best in the country but the best in the world.

In the past year, the prizes have grown to include new awards for writers and increased prize money for our seven core prize categories.

If you have an interest in books, writing, publishing, libraries or simply the joy of reading and sharing literature with people of all ages then please be in touch. We want to hear from you!

Even if a Board position isn’t a perfect fit for you, we are interested in volunteers to further our mandate in areas such as fundraising, promotion, publicity or committee work. We welcome your expressions of interest!

Please note that any interested applicants should be available to attend our AGM on Wednesday March 18th at 530PM.

Please send your resume or expression of interest to Executive Director, Sean Cranbury at
