Sarah Roberts wins Danuta Gleed award

B.C. writer Sarah Roberts has won the Danuta Gleed Literary Award for her debut book of short fiction, Wax Boats (Caitlin Press). The award was announced at The Writers’ Union of Canada’s annual general meeting this past weekend in Ottawa. Roberts receives $10,000 for the prize, which was established in 1997 to recognize a debut collection of fiction. Wax Boats is set on a remote island community in B.C., and features characters caught between modern life and the wilderness that surrounds them.

Roberts beat out Victoria’s Deborah Willis for her collection Vanishing and Other Stories (Penguin Canada), and Toronto’s Joey Comeau for Overqualified (ECW Press).
