Awards

2011 Winner

Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers

Jury Citation

“With her first novel, Stealing Nasreen, and now her discerning new novel, Six Metres of Pavement, it’s hard to imagine a gentler protestor than Farzana Doctor, but protest she does: racism, sexism, ageism, and homophobia all fall before her gentle yet powerful touch. She is a writer to cherish and reread when we feel the world lacks a moral centre.” -- 2011 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Jury (Jen Sookfong Lee, Jeffrey Round, and Zoe Whittall)
