Summer Dreams Awards Ceremony
: A Night of Honour

  • Join us at the Jacana Gallery, to celebrate those in the writing community who deserve to be honoured. On the eve of the Summer Dream’s fest we will begin with a lifetime achievement award for Susan Musgrave. We will then go on to give awards to publishers of magazines who continue to support novice and established writers despite cutbacks and inflation. To be honoured are Room, Event, Prism, Sub Terrain, Geist, The Vancouver Review, The Capilano Review, and One Cool Word. Finally, the evening will end with four special awards. Three will be awards of merit for persons or organizations that support the writing community. These awards come from the writing community itself. We asked for nominations from the community and the results will be announced the night of the gala. One award will go to recognize an individual who Pandora’s Collective feels has excelled in their support of writers within our community. This years Citizenship Award goes to Daniela Elza. The evening will continue with Pandora’s Collective commitment to highlighting community involvement to the public. Music: James Mark and Mike Peacock of Melic Thrum (our musical featured guest). Jaime Reid will close the evening with poetry and music. Silent Auction. Cash Bar.
