2017 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Finalist

 

Aly Blythe Dayne Ogilvie Prize finalist




Ali Blythe

















Jury Citation 

Reading Ali Blythe’s first collection, one is in continuous transit among bodies, species, images, phenomena, and myths. Wry, philosophical, and voluptuous, Twoism builds a lyrical stage made of movement along lines enjambed like switchbacks, taut couplets made in reversals, and stanzas redoubling division and displacement. His thoughts stretched wide, longing in between, Blythe illuminates a world both ruined and beautiful.

About the Author

Ali Blythe is the editor-in-chief of The Claremont Review. His poetry collection, Twoism, was nominated for the Dorothy Livesay Prize earlier this year. Blythe completed a residency at the Banff Centre and a writing degree at the University of Victoria, receiving the Candis Graham Writing Scholarship from the Lambda Foundation. He lives in Vancouver.
