I’m a bit behind in announcing this, but Stephen Kotowych, one of the writers who came to see me when I was writer-in-residence at the Toronto Public Library’s The Merril Collection of Science Fiction, Speculation and Fantasy in 2003, recently won the $5,000 Grand Prize in the Writers of the Future Contest, for which I’m a judge (judging is done blindly — and, in fact, I wasn’t a judge in the rounds Stephen was involved with).

After my time at the Merril, I created a writers’ workshop, known as The Fledglings, with many of the most-gifted writers who came to see me there, and Stephen has been a mainstry of that. I’m absolutely thrilled that he won! The SciFi Channel’s has a nice piece about his win here.
