Every year the FBCW has the opportunity to honour one person whose public activity has raised the profile of writers in the community with our Honourary Ambassador award. (It is not necessarily awarded annually, but the opportunity is there). Non-members are eligible to be nominated for this award, as long as they believe in the Federation’s work. Only members can nominate potential ambassadors. The recipient gets a lifetime FBCW membership. Our first Honourary Ambassador was Nanaimo’s poet laureate, Naomi Beth Wakan, who celebrated poetry in schools, clubs and council meetings and created a poetry map of her city. Until March 15th, 2017, we’ll be collecting your nominations for our next Honourary Ambassador, to be awarded at the 2017 AGM. Please fill out the form below!
