We look forward to an exciting year of
contests, events and publishing opportunities.
Thanks to the many people who have given a few minutes
of their time to the speak your mind survey
about how we can
improve the state of poetry in Canada. With events
such as the pink ambulance and poets in the streets,
more people are making an effort to spread the word.
I encourage you
to provide us with 5 minutes of your time. It will
impact us in ways you can only imagine.
If you have any questions,
feel free to send me an email.
