Pat Lowther and Gerald Lampert Shortlists

Standard

The shortlists for the Gerald Lampert and Pat Lowther awards have been announced:

Gerald Lampert
Kate Hall for The Certainty Dream(Coach House Books)
James Langer for Gun Dogs (House of Anansi Press)
Marcus McCann for Soft Where (Chaudiere Books)
Soraya Mariam Peerbaye for Poems for the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names (Goose Lane Editions)
Marguerite Pigeon for Inventory (Anvil Press)
Robert Earl Stewart for Something Burned Along the Southern Border (Mansfield Press)

Pat Lowther
Elizabeth Bachinsky for God of Missed Connections (Nightwood Editions)
Ronna Bloom for Permiso (Pedlar Press)
Sina Queyras for Expressway (Coach House Books)
Damian Rogers for Paper Radio (ECW Press, a misFit book)
Laisha Rosnau for Lousy Exploriers (Nightwood Editions)
Karen Solie for Pigeon (House of Anansi Press)

I’m not familiar with some of these, but others I think are wonderful, in particular those by Langer, Stewart and Solie. It will be interesting to see who these awards go to. The only negative here is that I now have to find some extra available funds to pick up copies of a couple of these I have no yet read.
