Saskatchewan Book Awards


The Saskatchewan Book Awards recognizes and celebrates excellence and diversity in Saskatchewan writing and publishing. It is a principal ambassador for the province’s literary community, promoting greater awareness of Saskatchewan books, authors, and publishers through its awards, public reading events, and other promotional initiatives.

Our Vision

The Saskatchewan Book Awards is a widely recognized and respected literary awards program, and its solid reputation for celebrating artistic excellence in style is recognized nationally.

SBA’s annual activities raise public awareness of, and promote, Saskatchewan books, authors, and publishers, by celebrating excellence and recognizing the diversity of Saskatchewan writing and publishing, including emerging literary genres of interest.

Our awards directly benefit authors and publishers by providing an incentive to strive for excellence, which, in turn, benefits Saskatchewan’s literary community, by increasing the number and calibre of publications produced each year. Our awards and promotional activities lead to commercial success for Saskatchewan writers and publishers.
