We’d like to extend a huge congratulations to Weyman Chan for winning the 2021 Latner Writers’ Trust Poetry Prize.
“Chan’s writing bursts with lyricism, wonder, and quiet ache. His poems are as concerned with notions of longing as with belonging,” said the jurors, Shane Book and Gillian Sze. “In Chan, we find a remarkable voice in Canadian poetry — necessary and distinct.”
Congratulations, Weyman! The Talon team is incredibly proud.
