2017 Finalist

RBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers

for after thoughts

Jury Citation

“Abetted by a sly humour and with an irony that inflects phrases with levity or the pathos of missing grandeur, Tyler Engström’s ‘after thoughts’ seizes on micro-events and renders them with a peculiar and delightful charisma. He successfully sidesteps inherited notions of what’s poetic, and lifts the communal material of language with personality, spirit, and insight.” — 2017 RBC Bronwen Wallace Award jury (Adèle Barclay, Stuart Ross, and Moez Surani)
