Posted on: Oct 5, 2017

CUE alumnus and former instructor, Mr. Benjamin Hertwig, has been nominated for this year’s Governor General’s Literary Award for Poetry in English.

Mr. Hertwig’s book, Slow War, is a sequence of poems recounting his experience before, during, and after his military service in Afghanistan several years ago. Slow War is an extremly powerful, haunting, and brilliant work of both art and life.
