Dundurn Press is thrilled to announce that three of our authors, Kate Armstrong, Amanda Laird, and Joanne Vannicola, have been shortlisted for the 2020 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize in the nonfiction category!

From Kate Armstrong’s harrowing expose of systematic misogyny in Canada’s military in The Stone Frigate: The Royal Military College’s First Female Cadet Speaks Out, to feminist holistic nutritionist Amanda Laird’s breakdown of the shame and stigma around menstruation in Heavy Flow: Breaking the Curse of Menstruation, and All We Knew But Couldn’t Say, Emmy-winner Joanne Vannicola’s heartbreaking memoir of trauma and maternal abuse, these three titles represent powerful feminist voices that Dundurn Press is honoured to be introducing to Canada’s literary landscape.

Congratulations to Kate, Amanda, and Joanne!

 

The Kobo Emerging Writer Prize was created with the intention of bringing literary recognition, and kick-starting the careers of debut Canadian authors. Winners will be announced in June 2020. Learn more about the Kobo Emerging Writer Prize here
