“1974” and “27,000 Breaths” make CBC Creative Nonfiction Prize Longlist

Yesterday, CBC announced this year’s longlist for the 2015 CBC Creative Nonfiction Prize. Thirty-two shortlisted stories were selected for this year’s longlist. I’m so pleased that two of my pieces–“1974” and “27,000 Breaths”–made the cut.

It’s especially gratifying to share the longlist with a number of writers I admire. Among these are Richard Wagamese, Jane Eaton Hamilton, and Brent vanStaalduinen. Congrats to everyone on this year’s list.

The shortlist of five finalists will be announced on September 14, with this year’s winner announced the following week.
