Terry Glavin receives the Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence

The Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence was established in 2003 by the Honourable Iona Campagnolo. It is meant to recognize British Columbia writers who have contributed to the development of literary excellence in the Province.

Our formal congratulations to author, journalist. editor, and educator, Terry Glavin for your amazing contributions to BC culture. He has “an extraordinarily holistic vision that … shows us a world where culture and nature, human aspiration, natural beauty, language, history and social justice are inextricably intertwined.” according to this year’s jury members.

Terry Glavin lives in Victoria and is an adjunct professor of creative writing at the University of British Columbia. His most recent book is Waiting for the Macaws and Other Stories from the Age of Extinctions and he is very well known for his Transmontanus Series with New Star Books. Terry Glavin is a frequent contributor to various newspapers and magazines, and his column for The Tyee, Dissent, appears twice monthly.
