2010 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBT Emerging Writers Honour of Distinction

Lisa Foad

Lisa Foad

Lisa Foad is a Toronto-based writer whose debut short story collection, The Night Is a Mouth, was published by Exile Editions in 2009. The jury called her debut “a provocative, fearless book, the language surreal in its violence and sensuality. All of the characters — even the despicable ones — are heartbreaking and whole.”
