Congratulations to Zoe Whittall!

Shameless Magazine would like to congratulate contributor and awesome author Zoe Whittall on not only being longlisted for the ReLit award this week, but also being announced as the recipient of the second annual Dayne Ogilvie Grant! (The grant is given annually to an emerging gay writer from Canada.)

Whittall’s first novel, Bottle Rocket Hearts, was published to rave reviews. It was chosen as a Globe and Mail Notable Book of 2007 and Whittall was named NOW Magazine’s Emerging Author of 2007. In commenting on the book, one of the jurors stated, “Whittall’s writing is smart, edgy, and clear-eyed. She paints a scene beautifully, slows it down to its essence, and yet keeps the novel’s momentum moving forward. Definitely a writer to watch!”

You can catch Whittall at this year’s Proud Voices Reading Series on June 28.

Congratulations Zoe!
