Apt. 9 Press congratulates Bardia Sinaee, who won the Walrus Poetry Prize Readers’ Choice Award last night. Kudos to The Walrus for setting up a readers’ choice award, and kudos to all of you fine people who voted.
We were lucky enough to publish a cool broadside by Bardia in June, a few short months before he left Ottawa to return to Toronto. And we are in no way surprised that he has managed to win a significant award barely two months into his second tenure in (or around) Toronto. Heads up, GTA (but don’t forget, we were reading his poems here first!).
