Amazing news! Joséphine Bacon is this year’s winner of the Canada Council for the Arts Molson Prize! View the full announcement here.

Our heartfelt congratulations to Joséphine on this well-deserved win. Keep your eyes peeled for her forthcoming poetry collection, Uiesh / Somewhere, which is comprised of short poems based on Bacon’s experience as an Innu woman, whose life has taken her from the nomadic ways of her Ancestors in the northern wilderness of Nitassinan, or Innu Territory, to the clamour and bustle of the city.
