Gwen Benaway
















Jury Citation 

Gwen Benaway’s first collection of poetry is truth telling in grace. An unflinching look at intergenerational trauma, Ceremonies of the Dead is a stellar contribution to contemporary Canadian poetry. Benaway digs deep and pulls you in, revealing light and love in the midst of violence. She is a poet to watch.
