News: Governor General’s Award FinalistsOctober 15, 2009
The finalists for the GGs (kind of like a Canadian version of the Pulitzer) in Poetry were announced this morning. I served as a juror for the process and am quite proud of the list. Of course there were many more I would like to have included, but I did what I could. Good luck to all the finalists. Results announced in November.
