Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION
By Bob Armstrong
Winnipeg poet Ariel Gordon has won the inaugural John Lent Poetry Prose Award from British Columbia-based Kalamalka Press.

Kalamalka Press will now publish Gordon's manuscript, How to Prepare a Collage. Her manuscript was selected from 36 entries.

Gordon, author of Hump (Palimpsest Press) and How to Prepare for Flooding (JackPine Press), is a past recipient of the John Hirsch Award for most promising Manitoba writer and the Aqua Books Lansdowne Prize for poetry.

This fall she will lead a series of reading and writing workshops, through the Winnipeg School Division's Lifelong Learning program, intended to inspire writers of all genres.
