RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers

for All Day I Dream About Sirens

Jury Citation

“‘All Day I Dream About Sirens’ is a shrewd epic that shimmies up and down the scales from highbrow to lowbrow. Domenica Martinello sharpens her teeth on tradition, wields tone like an axe, and carves space for unheard voices to emerge from the chorus. This poet harnesses the ethereal quality of digital and classical realms while her poems explode with fury and grace.” — 2017 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award jury (Adèle Barclay, Stuart Ross, and Moez Surani)
