Sometimes, summer jobs can really pay off. That is certainly the case for Vancouver’s Kate Bond, who drew on several years spent working as a tree planter in northern B.C., a historical tour guide in the Yukon, and a wildfire lookout in Alberta to craft her first screenplay, Trapline, which has been awarded the $25,000 Daryl Duke Prize.

Kate Bond is a Vancouver lawyer, the mother of a young child – and an aspiring writer. She has written eight novels, showing most of them to nobody. In the winter of 2015, she decided to try her hand at screenwriting. She was busy – with a full-time job working as a litigator at the federal Department of Justice, an 18-month-old son who wasn’t always sleeping through the night, and a husband who worked night shifts as a firefighter. Still, over the course of eight weeks, Ms. Bond wrote most of the first draft of a film script during her commute.

Kate Bond has the kind of voice that dances joyfully all over the vocal register, fiercely introspective yet disarmingly whimsical. “Writing a screenplay is very different from writing a novel. There’s so much white space on the page,” said the 34-year-old lawyer and writer from Vancouver.
