2017 Winner

RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers
for The Mistress and the Ping

Jury Citation

“‘The Mistress and the Ping’ is constructed from exhilarating, mile-a-minute prose poems that are fresh, provocative, and often funny. These visceral pieces take surprising hairpin turns, pulling the reader through proclamations, inquiries, and bursts of self-doubt. Noor Naga achieves all this with a language that is rich and sensory, and a visually rigid structure that counter-intuitively unfolds to allow a multiplicity of pacing and play.” — 2017 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award jury (Adèle Barclay, Stuart Ross, and Moez Surani)
