Member news: June 2010

The Editors’ Association of Canada was well represented at the Alberta Book Awards gala held in Edmonton on May 14, 2010. A dozen or so Prairie Provinces branch members cheered as their colleague Joan Dixon received the James H. Gray Award for Short Nonfiction for her piece entitled “The Perils of War and Mother-Son Relationships.” Also shortlisted for this award was Marguerite Watson for her piece entitled “What Grows in the Soil.” Joan Dixon was also shortlisted for the Jon Whyte Memorial Essay Prize for her essay, “Embedded on the Home Front,” which was published by Chatelaine.

Congratulations to QAC branch member Sandy Newton, co-author of Birds of Newfoundland: Field Guide. The guide was awarded the 2009 Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association’s award for Best Atlantic Published Book. Sandy notes that she “wore many editorial hats in the preparation of this book, including researcher, writer, editor and ‘novice birder’ test audience.”
