|Harbour Author Wins National Award for Travel Writing - September 8, 2008
|Harbour Publishing would like to congratulate Stephen Vogler, author of Top of the Pass, on receiving the Whistler Select Writing Award for travel writing. Award recipients are selected based on submissions from three categories–published journalism featuring Whistler from the past year, the telling of an untold Whistler story, and the best undiscovered fiction from the Whistler region. Stephen’s piece “The Bomb Shack Ski Patrol Museum,” published in Mountain Life Magazine, took the $1,000 prize. As the Whistler Select Writing Awards offer one of the largest cash prizes available in North America in the field of travel writing, this is a tremendous achievement for Stephen. Congratulations once again from everyone at Harbour Publishing.|
Vogler’s story was published in Mountain Life in the Winter of 2007, and can be read here, at page 17-18.
