Dundurn Press is excited to announce that our author Eddy Boudel Tan has been named one of the Writers’ Trust of Canada’s five Rising Stars of 2021. We are thrilled that Eddy has been recognized as a writer to watch by the Writers’ Trust selector, acclaimed author Brian Francis. Boudel Tan truly deserves the $5,000 prize to help further his already brilliant career. Congratulations Eddy!
More about the Rising Stars program is available here.
Eddy Boudel Tan is the author of two Dundurn Press novels, After Elias (September 2020) and The Rebellious Tide (forthcoming July 2021). His work depicts a world much like our own—the heroes are flawed, truth is distorted, and there is as much hope as there is heartbreak. As a queer Asian Canadian, Eddy celebrates diverse voices through his writing. His short fiction and nonfiction can be found in Joyland, Yolk, Gertrude Press, and the G&LR. Apart from being a writer and a traveller, he serves home-cooked meals to those living on the streets as co-founder of the Sidewalk Supper Project. He lives with his husband in Vancouver, BC.
