Congratulations to MFA student Alessandra Naccarato, who’s a finalist for the Writers’ Trust RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for her collection of poetry “Re-Origin of Species”.
The RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers rewards writers who are under age 35 and unpublished in book form. Alternating each year between poetry and short fiction, the award is given this year to the author of an exceptional collection of poetry. The $5,000 award is supported by the RBC Emerging Artists Project, which invests in developing artists to help build their professional careers. The winner will be announced on May 26 at an event hosted by novelist and poet Tanis Rideout at the Royal Conservatory of Music.
