Kirton and Eng short-listed for BC Book Prizes!

Congratulations to the finalists of the 2018 BC Book Prizes! We are immensely pleased to see two wonderful Talon poets on the short list for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize: Jónína Kirton’s An Honest Woman and Mercedes Eng’s Prison Industrial Complex Explodes have both been nominated.

The BC Book Prizes, established in 1985, celebrate the achievements of British Columbia writers and publishers. The seven Prizes are presented annually at the Lieutenant Governor’s BC Book Prizes Gala in the spring – this year on Friday, May 4, at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront in Vancouver. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed!
