April is National Poetry Month

Posted By Nico On April 8, 2011 @ 9:00 am In News | No Comments

April is National Poetry Month [1] here in Canada, and in the United States (Great Britain celebrates its poets in October).

Canada Arts Connect Magazine [2] has rounded up a selection of “random acts of poetry”, and includes a line from an interlude found in Daniel Scott Tysdal’s The Mourner’s Book of Albums [3].

If you’re so inclined, check out some of the poetry collections and anthologies we’ve published [4], including our ever popular Best Canadian Poetry series [5]. We also have a vibrant Best Canadian Poetry blog. [6]

“Any healthy man can go without food for two days – but not without poetry.”

–Charles Baudelaire
