Every year, CBC Books enlists the help of established writers and editors from across Canada to read the thousands of entries submitted to our prizes. This year, Sonya Lalli was honoured to take part as one of the readers.
Readers compile the longlist, which is then given to a jury who chooses a shortlist.
You can meet the readers for the 2023 CBC Short Story Prize by clicking here.
