We invite you to celebrate the 23rd National Poetry Month this April! This celebration was started by the non-profit organization The League of Canadian Poets. They are dedicated to supporting poets, building poetic communities, supporting inclusive free expression, and promoting Canadian poets and Poetry. The theme this year is resilience. This past year has made us all become more resilient, whether we liked it or not. We have faced unprecedented situations, adversity, and more difficulty than we would like to admit. But we are recovering and growing stronger. We are learning how to bounce back. We are resilient.

“On the other side of a storm is the strength that comes from having navigated through it. Raise your sail and begin.”
- Gregory S. Williams, Author
