Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer Wins The Sidney Prize

Author Kathryn Kuitenbrouwer has won the $1,000 Sidney Prize for her short story, “Will You Staunch the Wound?” You can read an excerpt from the story at this link, but the Storyville App will publish the story in April.

Judge Richard Nash explained why he picked the story: “In a world grown increasingly strange, we can no longer rely on what we know since we know so little, so instead we rely on our humanity. Kuitenbrouwer does so with elegance, compassion, and as I realize as I write this, with more rage than first meets the eye.”

The prize is named after New Orleans architect Sidney Story, and rewards “the author of the best new American story.” Kuitenbrouwer is the author of two novels, Perfecting and The Nettle Spinner.  She is a creative writing professor at the University of Toronto and The University of Guelph.
