P. K. PAGE TRUST FUND

In 2011, the P. K. Page trust fund was created to establish the funds for a League mentorship program. The initial $10,000 deposit comprised donations from the Page family, Roger Nash, and DC Reid as well as proceeds from a series of readings hosted across Canada to honour P.K. Page. Page was a luminous, intelligent poet who made an enormous contribution to Canadian poetry for more than five decades. She was awarded a life membership in the League in 1987. Her poem, Planet Earth, was honoured by the United Nations as their poem of the planet. The PK Page Trust Fund aims to establish a mentorship programme that will pair a junior and senior poet to work on a manuscript by the junior poet.

To donate to the P.K. Page trust fund, complete the above donation form and please specify “P.K. Page” in the comment box.
