The Charles Taylor Foundation has announced Adnan Khan as this year’s recipient of the RBC Taylor Emerging Writer Award, given to assist a Canadian published author working on a significant writing project, usually in the area of literary non-fiction.

Khan, who lives in Toronto, is the co-host of Speakeasy, a monthly reading series, and is currently working on a novel and completing his master of fine arts degree.
