Emerging Writer of 2016: Godage National Literary Awards

I was awarded the “Emerging Writer of the Year” for the year 2016, in the Godage National Literary Awards ceremony, for my collection of poems “Kite Dreams”

I was also shortlisted for the award for the overall poetry prize for the year 2016. However, Prof. Kamani Jayaskera, beat me to it.
