Best Writer

Winner: Lesley Choyce

Halifax’s most prolific writer—he’s produced fiction, non-fiction, poetry and books for kids—is also a noted surfer. In fact, Choyce leads a band called the Surf Poets, which is the perfect marriage of his two loves. And you just love him for it, for the second year running.

Runner-up: Stephen Kimber
