NPM – The League of Canadian Poets

If you haven’t yet taken a look at their website, perhaps it’s time! The League of Canadian Poets’ site is filled with hundreds of Canadian poets to learn about and adore. They list writing submission information as well as their own contests and awards. They even have a Poetry Pause program whereby you can sign up to get a poem a day in your inbox….heeee…so that would make two! This is also a great asset for educators as it is a hub for Canadian poetry and they have student poetry writing contests.

Visit their website: www.poets.ca
