TORONTO, ONT (May 2015) – Toronto author and founder of Kya Publishing, Stacey Marie Robinson, has been nominated for a 2015 Black Canadian Award in the Writer/Literary Work category.

The Black Canadian Awards show, presented by the Diversity Advancement Network, takes place on Saturday, June 6 at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Toronto. The Awards were created to celebrate the success stories and achievements of trail blazers and leaders in the Black Canadian community.

Voting in a variety of categories ranging from fashion, to spoken word, and media personalities begins on Thursday, May 28 and continues until June 4—votes can be submitted online at the Black Canadian Awards website:

“I write contemporary Canadian Urban Fiction, which is a genre that is relatively new in the Canadian publishing scene,” said Robinson, who has recently self-published her ninth novel through Kya Publishing, Carnival Spotlight. “It is an honour for me to be recognized for this style of writing, in the same category as my peers from other genres, and an honour to share the coming-of-age story of my character Symone on a larger platform.”
