City of Regina Writing Award:
The Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild is proud to administer the City of Regina Writing Award, funded by the City of Regina. This competition is an award for literary merit in creative writing; it is open to writers in all genres. The $4,000 award is designed to enable one local writer to work on a specific solo writing project for a three-month period. The award competition is juried by professional writers from outside Saskatchewan.
David Sealy was born and raised in Regina. He has published writing in magazines, journals, and anthologies and he was a runner-up for the City of Regina Writing Award in 2005. David likes to write plays. His dramatic monologue “I Married a Dishrag” was a winner in Grain magazine’s Short Grain contest. Three of his short pieces were read during Globe Theatre’s On the Line series. Life’s Like That was part of the Saskatchewan Playwrights Centre Spring Festival, and Runaway Barbies was presented at the Petro-Canada Stage One Festival in Calgary. Calgary’s Lunchbox Theatre plans to produce his play The Bob Shivery Show in the fall of 2012. He is currently co-writing the musical No Ordinary Tulip with Lynn Marie Calder.
Playwright and fiction writer BD Miller received his MFA in Creative Writing from the University of British Columbia in 2011. His new drama, Overture and Beginners: Boris Karloff and the Regina Cyclone, was commissioned by Regina Summer Stage, through funding provided by the City of Regina Arts Commission.
Katherine Lawrence is the author of two earlier books of poems, Ring Finger, Left Hand (2000) and Lying to Our Mothers (2006). Her award-winning work has been broadcast on CBC radio and published in literary magazines across Canada, including the anthology 2010 Best Canadian Poetry in English.
