About the anthology:
Now in its seventh year, the Cuffer Prize is sponsored by The Telegram and Creative Book Publishing in St. John’s. It showcases some of the best short fiction from Newfoundland and Labrador writers, both new and established.
Entries in 2013 delved into a wide variety of themes — friendships, relationships, the tight bonds between people and animals, dark villainy in its many forms and the myriad mysteries of the human condition. The stories were reviewed by Cuffer Prize judges Jessica Grant, Joan Sullivan and Russell Wangersky, and selected by editor Pam Frampton.
The Cuffer Anthology Volume VI includes exquisitely crafted stories from the top three prize winners in 2013: Eva Crocker for “Skin and Mud”, Chad Pelley for “Where to Look” and Kerri Cull for “The Musher.” They were chosen from the more than 160 entries for the Cuffer Prize. A portion of the proceeds from each anthology is donated to Literacy Newfoundland and Labrador.
