Welcome to the blog for National Poetry Month 2013! Each year in April, the League of Canadian Poets coordinates National Poetry Month, marking a time to read, write, discuss, promote and celebrate Canadian poetry.
Each day during National Poetry Month, we will be featuring a poem by one of our members and a poem by a new or unpublished poet here on the blog. Our submission guidelines for both members and new poets are available here.
Our events page will feature a listing of national events, so you can find a local celebration to take part in. If you’d like to feature National Poetry Month on your website, blog, or in your library, you can visit our resources page to see what is available.
If you’d like to plan a National Poetry Month event, check out the funding resources made available by the LCP, and see if you are eligible to apply!
Join us in April in celebrating Canadian Poetry, we hope to see you at an event!
