Naomi K. Lewis wins Colophon Prize

Winnipeg publisher Enfield & Wizenty has awarded its third annual Colophon Prize for Fiction to Naomi K. Lewis for her short story collection, I Know Who You Remind Me Of.

Awarded for the best unpublished manuscript with “literary and commercial appeal,” the prize includes publication and a $5,000 advance. I Know Who You Remind Me Of will be released in September.

The author of the novel Cricket in a Fist (Goose Lane Editions), Lewis lives in Calgary, where she teaches creative writing and was the Calgary Public Library’s writer-in-residence in fall 2011.

Two runners-up were also granted publishing contracts with E&W: Méira Cook’s The House on Sugarbush Road, a novel set in post-apartheid South Africa, and Richard Van Camp’s short story collection, Godless but Devoted to Heaven, which explores contemporary aboriginal life in Canada.
