I'm very happy to report that The Conseil des arts et des lettres has awarded David Solway a Bourse de carriere valued at $60,000. These bourses are awarded only once every two years and only two go out to writers.
This is the second time David been acknowledged in this public way by the Francophone community, the other occasion being the Grand Prix du Livre in 2004. He was the first Anglophone writer in the history of the prize to win it.
David's most recent Signal Editions collection is Reaching for Clear which was awarded the 2007 QWF A.M. Klein Prize for poetry
