Canadian Art has been nominated for a National Magazine Award this year.
Toronto-based freelance writer and editor Jason McBride has been nominated in the Feature Writing category for his story on the post-punk literary legend Kathy Acker’s time in Toronto. Edited by David Balzer, the article was originally published in the Fall 2016 issue of Canadian Art. Read the nominated story here.
McBride, who has written for publications including Toronto Life, New York, the New York Times Magazine and the Globe and Mail, is currently working on Kathy Acker: Her Revolutionary Life and Work, the first authorized biography of the late American writer.
Canadian Art’s Indigenous editor-at-large Lindsay Nixon also received a nomination in the One of a Kind category for “Windigo,” published in the Malahat Review.
The list of nominees was released this morning.
The winners of the 40th annual National Magazine Awards will be announced at a gala on May 26 at the Arcadian Court in Toronto.
