About Dr. John W. Bilsland
The late John W. Bilsland earned his MA from the University of British Columbia and a PhD from the University of Toronto. John was a Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Alberta and taught for 30 years before becoming a volunteer teacher at Strathcona Place 55+ Centre. He was a member of the centre for 30 years.
The class John (Jack) taught produced 21 published senior writers in his 23 years as a volunteer instructor. It is in his honour that this important award is named. He was an inspiration to those he taught and the muse of Strathcona Place writers.
There is a $1000 prize for each of three categories. $700 to first place, $300 to second.
The following is the application fee for entry into the award program:
