NATIONWIDE READINGS FUNDING

Our Canada Poetry Tours program is now accepting applications for funding for readings taking place anywhere in Canada from April 1 to September 30, 2018. This funding is available for readings by full members of the League in good standing, and includes some travel reimbursement in addition to a reading honorarium. Applications must be submitted by the host, and funding will be distributed on a first come, first served basis per province. We highly recommend submitting by email, particularly for high-demand provinces like Ontario and BC. Visit poets.ca/cpt for full guidlines, details, and the updated application form!

NATIONAL POETRY MONTH 2018 EVENT FUNDING

2018 is officially upon us, and that means April is pretty much right around the corner!

Funding is distributed on a first come, first served basis per province. Applications are open from January 15 to February 15, 2018. Visit our National Poetry Month events funding page for details, guidlines, and an application form.
