2016 will mark the 50th Anniversary of The League of Canadian Poets! To celebrate this momentous milestone, stories from League members will be featured on our blog (poets.ca/blog) and in our monthly newsletters throughout the year. Do you have a League story to tell? We’d love to hear your funny anecdote from an AGM, a tale of a memorable reading, or a poignant piece about a particularly important moment in your writing life. Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit poets.ca/LCP50 for more information.
