The members and staff of the Writers' Federation of Nova Scotia deeply mourn the loss of Alistair MacLeod who passed away on Sunday, April 20th. His books, his teaching, his steadfast friendship, and his commitment to his home province have all been there for us to lean on and grow from. In November 2001, when he won the Portia White Prize for his excellence and achievements, Alistair named our Writers' Federation as the recipient of part of that prize.
The WFNS offices will be closed Friday, April 18 and Monday, April 21st. We will be back in the office on Tuesday, April 22nd and will respond to any voicemail and e-mail messages then.
The honour is for her book "Ocean," published by Gaspereau Press.
