Journey Prize goes to Victoria writer for piece in Vancouver Review

Victoria short-story writer Yasuko Thanh won the $10,000 Writers' Trust of Canada /McLelland & Stewart Journey Prize for the piece "Floating Like the Dead," published in Vancouver Review magazine. The award was announced on Tuesday in Toronto at the same time that Vancouver author Annabel Lyon won the $25,000 Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize for her novel, The Golden Mean.
The awards recognize Canadian writers of exceptional talent for the year's best novel or short-story collection.

Yasuko is a fantastic young writer, who has also published nonfiction in a number of magazines. And the Vancouver Review is a great publication that still flies beneath too many radars. Congrats to both of them!
