Award History

2014 Finalist

RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers
for Screen Capture

Jury Citation

“In ‘Screen Capture,’ Jakub Stachurski deftly explores our tangled digital lives, the way technology shrinks our world and ties us together even while it alienates and isolates us. Concise and sharp, the writing reflects each of us in its world of omnipresent screens and monitors.” — 2014 RBC Bronwen Wallace Jury (Diane Schoemperlen, Michelle Berry, and Tanis Rideout)
