Dr. Kari-Lynn Winters won the Surrey Board of Trade Special Achievement Award at this year’s Surrey International Writers’ Conference. The purpose of the award is to honor writers who have made a significant achievement in their writing careers during the past year.

Dr. Winters has achieved significant literary and academic achievement. She is a gifted writer, teacher and performer, and not only did she publish three books, but one of them, ‘On My Walk’ was short listed for the 2010 Christie Harris Illustrated Children’s Book B.C. Book Prize award. In addition to a year of publishing triumphs she was hired as an assistant professor at Brock University. In fact she was hired for the position even before she defended her doctoral dissertation in Language and Literacy Education from UBC. At her graduation in June 2010, she delivered the convocation speech on behalf of her fellow graduate students. In addition, she has presented at various academic conferences and has made presentations as a children’ book author at literary and literacy events across North America.
