April is National Poetry Month, bringing together poets, publishers, schools and libraries across Canada to celebrate poetry and its influence in Canadian culture. This month is dedicated to growing the audience of poetry and appreciating Canadian poetry.
Here at the Green Party of Ontario, we would like to show our appreciation of Canadian poetry by hosting a green poetry competition! The winner of this competition will have their poem featured in our next calendar and will win a copy.
The subject: Anything green/Green!
The format: a Haiku (an explanation of this style and some examples can be found at: http://examples.yourdictionary.com/examples-of-haiku-poems.html)
We would love to hear about your poetic passion for the environment and green living. If you know any friends or family who love being green and have poetic talent, spread the word.
The deadline for submission is April 30th, 2013.
Please e-mail them to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or send them via post to: 67 Mowat Avennue, Suite 035. Toronto, ON. M6K 3E3
Please join us in celebrating Poetry Month!
