Halifax writer and CWILA critic-in-residence (and former Q&Q intern) Shannon Webb-Campbell has won the 2014 Out in Print Literary Award.

Organized by Egale Canada Human Rights Trust, the award provides “financial and publishing support to an emerging queer and/or trans-spectrum, female-identified writer in Canada.”

As winner, Webb-Campbell’s debut poetry collection, Tell Me Medicine Woman, Who Do I Belong To?, will be published by Breakwater Books, with design support from by Zab Design and Typography. She will also receive $3,500 and a Toronto book launch, to be scheduled for February.
