The Journey Prize
We’re introducing the 13 contributors to The Journey Prize Stories 26 one at a time and in alphabetical order. Say hello to our fifth contributor, Amy Jones, whose story “Wolves, Cigarettes, Gum,” was published by ROOM.
AMY JONES is the author of the short fiction collection What Boys Like, which won the 2008 Metcalf-Rooke Award and was shortlisted for the 2010 ReLit Award. Originally from Halifax, she now lives in Thunder Bay, where she is currently working on a novel and a collection of short stories.
Congratulations to Amy and to everyone at ROOM!

Time capsules are pretty awesome, but a new initiative called the Future Library project is taking them to a whole other level. For the next century, one author per year will contribute a piece that will then be sealed away until 2114. Margaret Atwood is up first. If you’re a fan, you have 100 years to get pumped up.
