BACHINSKY AND QUEYRAS SHORTLISTED FOR PAT LOWTHER AWARD

SLS Montreal faculty members Elizabeth Bachisnky and Sina Queyras have both been shortlisted for the 2010 Pat Lowther Award for Poetry.  The Award is given annually to a female poet for a collection published in the previous year.  Deanne Beattie of the Vancouver Review called Bachinsky’s God of Missed Connections “a formidable work from this young poet: a considered and important contribution to the quintessential dialogue on Canada’s fractured collective history,” while Xtra! says in a review of Queyras’s Expressway, “[she] writes circles around her contemporaries.” Queyras has previously won the Lowther Award, for 2007’s Lemon Hound.
