Happy National Poetry Month!

Did you know National Poetry Month is 15 years old in Canada?

I’m excited to perform tomorrow for the Institute of Cultural Affair’s community of facilitators and friends tomorrow. Come join us! Details for both of my two official poetry month gigs are linked here. Thanks to the League of Canadian Poets, the Canada Council for the Arts and the Department of Heritage for funding.

I had the pleasure of attending the League of Canadian Poets’ official launch party for poetry month. I breezed in buoyed up by the inspiration I soaked up at York Region’s Be Heard Festival.

I’m amazed by the poetry I saw taking shape at Huttonville Public School yesterday. I’m grateful for the connections I made on Friday with the 8 1/2s and the Intensive Class at Markville. I am curious about how my presentation and performance at Holy Trinity School today will help shape the verbal-visual-essays the students are creating about a social justice topic.

It’s a busy month for this poet!
