The Atlantic Journalism Awards have named Harry Bruce as the recipient of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
Twice a National Magazine Award winner as a writer for Atlantic Insight magazine (of which he was the founding editor, and which won 7 NMAs during its heyday in the 1980s before closing in 1989), Harry Bruce began his career with the Ottawa Journal in 1955, before moving on to stints with Maclean’s, The Canadian and Saturday Night (the latter as managing editor) before returning to his maritime roots to launch Atlantic Insight.
He’s also the author of twenty books of non-fiction, twice winning the Evelyn Richardson Memorial Literary Award for best non-fiction book by a Nova Scotian. Read more about Harry at the AJA website, including testimonials from Robert Fulford, Dawn Chafe, Stephen Kimber and others.
Harry will be recognized at the annual Atlantic Journalism Awards gala on May 11 at the Halifax Marriott Harbourfront Hotel.
