Winnipeg Free Press journalist Melissa Martin was awarded top honours for writing, the Professional Writers Association of Canada said in an announcement.
Martin’s entry “La Lang di Michif Tapashipiikan” was the winner in the features category for the second annual writing awards. The story ran Sept. 25, 2010.
The winner for short articles was Toronto Star journalist Beverley Akerman.
“Congratulations to the second annual PWAC Writing Award winners, runners-up and other finalists. The entries and finalists demonstrate the rich diversity and overall quality of journalism and creative non-fiction in the country,” says PWAC President Craig Silverman.
“PWAC is pleased to showcase the skills of Canadian writers through the award competition.”
