Posted on Thursday, March 28, 2019

Congratulations to Chuqiao Yang, whose chapbook Reunions in the Year of the Sheep, is the 2018 winner of the bpNichol Chapbook Award. Ms. Yang– who was also a 2015 finalist for the RBC Bronwen Wallace Award and is featured in 30 under 30: an anthology of Canadian millennial poets (In/Words Press, 2017)– is a graduate of our ENG 3164 (Advanced Workshop in Poetry). The award, which recognizes excellence in Canadian poetry in English published in chapbook form, came with a prize of $4,000.  The judges’ citation praised the “astonishing” voice of this collection of lyric poems, whose “language leaps effortlessly between Chinese culture, classical mythology, and personal history.”
