2013 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBT Emerging Writers Honour of Distinction

Webster,-Barry






Barry Webster
















Jury Citation

If only the world were as limitless and magnificent as the one artfully written in Barry Webster's The Lava In My Bones. Lovers swallowing rocks to express their mutual adoration, honey flow instead of sweat—Barry's imagination is relentless and unpredictable, eroding our everyday sensibilities, only to uncover something grander, something sweeter.
