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.
