2016 Winner

Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers

Jury Citation

“Leah Horlick’s poetry harvests solace and beauty from lands often thought too dark to cultivate. Hers is a poetry of surviving and, indeed, thriving in the spaces where prairie meets ocean and where love can be complicated. Both Riot Lungand For Your Own Good are must reads. Rarely has a poet transformed silence and taboo into such potent epiphanies.” -- 2016 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Jury (Anjula Gogia, Billeh Nickerson, and Casey Plett)
