Our partners over at Matrix Magazine, and this year’s Robert Kroetsch Award judge, swift reader and thoughtful character, Karen Solie, have offered their learned opinions and helped whittle down Award submissions to the following shortlist.
Here then, in no particular order are the few, the proud, the brave:
Lucas Crawford for Sideshow Concessions
Shannon Kernaghan for Nightlife of Jupiter
Andy McGuire for Top Ten Things To Do After You Die
Adele Barclay for If I Were In a Cage I’d Reach Out For You
Ashley-Elizabeth Best for Slow States of Collapse
Elee Kraljii Gardiner for Tunica Intima
Congratulations all around!
