Renowned writer and Boyle Street resident Candas Jane Dorsey has won the Golden Pen Award from the Writers’ Guild of Alberta.

The WGA Golden Pen Award acknowledges and honours the lifetime achievements of an outstanding Alberta writer. Dorsey actually invented the award when she was President of the WGA. She presented the very first one to W.O. Mitchell.

“It is a great honour to be in this place almost 25 years later,” she says.

Dorsey was nominated by fellow writer and Boyle Street resident Anita Jenkins.

The award ceremony is on June 10.
