Laurier’s English program in Brantford is pleased to announce that one of Canada’s top young authors, Souvankham Thammavongsa, has joined its faculty as instructor of Creative Writing and will hold the first Laurier Stedman Fellowship from 2021 to 2024.
Also a novelist and award winning poet, Thammavongsa is the reigning winner of Canada’s richest literary award, the $100,000 Scotiabank Giller Prize, for her book of short stories How to Pronounce Knife. This book is a New York Times “Editors’ Choice,” and the only Canadian entry on Time magazine’s 100 must-read books of 2020.
The English program at Laurier’s Brantford campus is a top choice for Ontario students who are looking for a small-class, small-university, intensive model of undergraduate education in English and who are serious about the craft of writing.
