What's on at the League
LCP Chapbook Series
We are seeking poetry submissions from trans, nonbinary, and two-spirit poets for publication in a new chapbook edited by Tara Borin: "Send me your poems of trans ordinariness, your small joys and frustrations, your quiet moments of connection or escape, your quotidian. Let me see the power and beauty of your everyday."
National Poetry Month
Established in Canada in 1998 by the League of Canadian Poets, National Poetry Month takes place every April and brings together schools, publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, communities and poets from across the country to celebrate poetry and its vital place in Canada's culture.
Le Mois national de la poésie
Établie au Canada en 1998, le MNP rassemble les écoles, les maisons d’éditions, les librairies, les bibliothèques, les organismes littéraires et les poètes de partout au Canada afin de célébrer la vitalité d’une poésie bien ancrée au sein de la culture canadienne.
Check out some great poetry by poets in Canada including: Poetry Pause, Poems from Young Poets, Fresh Voices: poetry by associate members of the League, as well as chapbooks available for purchase or download from the LCP Chapbook Series.
