Slideshow: RBC Bronwen Wallace Award

On Wednesday evening, The Writers’ Trust of Canada celebrated a trio of emerging authors at the RBC Bronwen Wallace Award in Toronto. The prize alternates every year between stories and poetry by authors under the age of 35 who haven’t published in book form.

Alissa York, a Bronwen Wallace Award winner herself, emceed the event at the Royal Conservatory of Music. During her introductions, York explained the general importance of the award to a writer (“money equals time to write”) and shared with finalists Dina Del Bucchia, Kathy Friedman, and Jen Neale her own reaction to the phone call announcing her nomination for the prize back in 1999 (she laughed, shrieked, and “had a good cry”).

Neale’s “Elk-Headed Man” took home the first prize of $5,000, while Del Bucchia and Friedman each received $1,000 for their respective stories “Under the I” and “At the Bottom of the Garden.”
