The Cuffer Anthology, Volume VII

A Collection of Short Stories from Newfoundland and Labrador

Now in its eighth 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 2014 explored many different themes — coming of age, the tensions that thrum through relationships, sex and seduction, the connection between people and the sea, illness and intrigue, and life’s daily rituals. 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 VII includes three highly polished gems from the top prize winners in 2014: Beth Ryan for “Campfire Stories” and Tracey Waddleton for both “White Cat” and “Riding with Maurice.” 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.
