8th ANNUAL DIANA BREBNER PRIZE FOR POETRY
The winner of the Diana Brebner Prize for 2009 is Gillian Wallace for “Crow, of the family Corvidae.” This contest honours the memory of the late Ottawa poet Diana Brebner, and is awarded each year to an emerging poet in the National Capitol region. The prize was judged this year by Gatineau poet and former Arc editorial board member, Peter Richardson. He also awarded an honourable mention to Jacqueline Kawaja for the “Speed of Angiogenesis. Both of these winners will be on hand to read the winning poems.
Due to a change in deadline this year, we are actively encouraging new submissions to the 9th Annual Diana Brebner while celebrating the 8th. If you are a poet living in the National Capital Region who has not yet been published in book form, we want to hear from you. All submissions to the 2010 competition must be postmarked no later than March 1, 2010. For detailed submission guidelines, please see:
ARC #63 – CANADA’S THREE LEGGED POETRY MAGAZINE
Contributors to Arc #63 and Arc board members will be on hand to help launch the Winter 2010 issue with readings of selections from the current issue.
