The 2013 Irving Layton Award for Creative Writing for poetry went to Emma Healey, BA (English lit. & creative writing) 13. Healey, who’s now working as a writer/editor in Toronto, says she began to write poetry in a first-year course at Concordia. In 2012, she published a book of poetry, Begin With the End in Mind (Arbeiter Ring Publishing).
Here is Healey’s award-winning work, selected poems from her Loan Suite.
