LCP50: CHAPBOOK CONTEST

We were so excited to discover these two beautiful chapbooks in our #LCP50 adventures! We found out that in the late 90s and early 2000s the League ran a national chapbook contest open to all Canadian poets. We discovered 1998 winner George McWhirter’s chapbook Ovid in Saskatchewan, and 2000 winner Claudia Morrison’s Arrival. Unfortunately, we’re unable to figure out how long this contest ran, and who the other winners might have been! Do you remember? If you have any interesting #LCP50 facts, stories, or tidbits to share, feel free to email info@poets.ca!
