Each year, Concordia’s Department of English hands out prizes for excellence in the studies of English literature and creative writing. Those include the Irving Layton Awards for Creative Writing, each worth $500 and given to undergraduate students for works of poetry and fiction.

To qualify for the poetry award, students must submit a portfolio of one or several poems.

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.
