‘L’Étranger’, a new short story by UEA alumna Eliza Robertson, has been included in a shortlist of five stories selected from over 2,400 entries for Canada’s CBC Short Story Prize. Eliza (pictured) graduated with distinction from the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) at UEA in 2012, and was the recipient of the Booker Foundation scholarship. She was last year shortlisted for the Willesden Herald International Short Story Prize and has previously been shortlisted for the McClelland & Stewart Journey Prize and Canada’s National Magazine Awards. The winner of the CBC Short Story Prize will be announced on March 26 and will receive $6,000, a two-week writing residency at The Banff Centre, and publication in Air Canada’s ‘enRoute’ magazine. The other finalists will each receive $1,000 and publication on the Canada Writes website.
