Bronwen Wallace Awards Ceremony

I’m not feeling too wordy, so ‘ll let some pictures do the talking. I want to emphasize again how generous and welcoming the Writers’ Trust was to us finalists, and how much fun and great conversation I had with Garth Martens and Anne-Marie-Turza. As surreal as the whole experience was, I felt grounded by the genuineness and support of everyone around me.

Megan and I, and our friends Lindsay and Nick. I know them from Vancouver, and Lindsay particularly from the Writer's Studio where she was in my poetry group. It was so great to have them there and to kindly offer their place to us for a couple nights.

  1. thanks for the post R! it looks like your trip was pleasant 🙂
    i have to say, there are few that could pull off wearing a cord fed. you are among them, and you do it with grace. however, i am inclined to question the need for that huge scarf

  2. congratulations, raoul! it sounds like it was a lovely experience, and you look great in the pictures. where could i read some of your newer poems?
