Billy-Ray Belcourt wins the 2018 Robert Kroetsch Edmonton Book Award!

A big congratulations to Billy-Ray Belcourt who won the 2018 Robert Kroetsch Edmonton Book Award for THIS WOUND IS A WORLD!

“Part manifesto, part memoir, This Wound is a World is an invitation to “cut a hole in the sky to world inside.” Billy-Ray Belcourt issues a call to turn to love and sex to understand how Indigenous peoples shoulder sadness and pain like theirs without giving up on the future. His poems upset genre and play with form, scavenging for a decolonial kind of heaven where “everyone is at least a little gay.” (Source: Frontenac House)”
