bpNichol Chapbook Award Winners

I’d like to congratulate the winners of the 2009 bpNichol Chapbook Award: Gary Barwin (Inverting the Deer) and Sandra Ridley (Lift: Ghazals for C). It’s strange to me how little press surrounds this award – I was hard pressed to find any mention of the winners online when I returned from cottaging this week. The organizers have done a wonderful job of increasing the annual prize money ($1000 each to the winners), which actually equals what is given out to Gerald Lampert Memorial Award Winners for the best first-book of Canadian Poetry.
