2019 Lampman Award Shortlist Reading
October 3, 2019, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDT
Arc Poetry Magazine was founded in 1978 by three professors at Carleton University in Ottawa, on the traditional and unceded territories of the Algonquin Nation. The magazine is proud to honour poets from this region, especially by presenting the Archibald Lampman Award to an outstanding collection of poetry by a National-Capital area author.
Selected by a jury of Dane Swan and Gillian Sze, the shortlisted books and authors for this award are Book of Annotations (Invisible Publishing) by Cameron Anstee, Dividing the Wayside (Palimpsest Press) by Jenny Haysom, and Reunion (Brick Books) by Deanna Young.
The three shortlisted authors will join together for an evening of readings from their shortlisted collections on Thursday, October 3rd at Vimy Brewing Company in Ottawa. At this event Arc will also reveal the winner and honourable mention of the 2019 Diana Brebner Prize.
