A Family of Dreamers Named a Finalist for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize

We are delighted that Samantha Nock’s debut book A Family of Dreamers was named a finalist for the 2024 Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize! A Family of Dreamers weaves together threads of fat liberation, desirability politics, and heartbreak while working through her existence as a young Indigenous woman coming of age in the city. The result is a love song to northern cuzzins, dive bars, and growing up.

Our most heartfelt congratulations, Samantha!
