Awards

2013 Winner

Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers

Jury Citation

“C.E. Gatchalian’s multifarious voice has emerged in many places. As a playwright, poet, cultural curator, and mentor, Gatchalian is reaching ever-growing audiences across Canada, not only broadening the creative dialogue on queer identity, but also championing intricate portraits of race, survivorship, and sexuality. Being both candid and complex requires assiduity on the part of the author. His newest play, Falling in Time, is an unflinching look at war, masculinity, migration, intimacy, and love.” -- 2013 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Jury (Amber Dawn, Anne Fleming, and Vivek Shraya)
