It feels like we woke up yesterday and National Poetry Month was just beginning, but somehow it’s May tomorrow and we have to wrap up our celebrations. We’ve had such a great month celebrating poetry, both online and in events across Canada, and seeing what other organizations orchestrated for our favourite month! We’ve definitely missed tons and tons of initiatives, but here’s a small roundup of #NPM16 goodies we loved this April:

Stay tuned next week–National Youth Arts Week–for our announcement of the winners of our 2016 Jessamy Stursberg Poetry Prize for Canadian youth!

Thank you to everybody who participated in National Poetry Month this year, whether it fit with our theme or not, and thanks to everyone who shared the word about our initiatives! To find archived information about our 2016 theme, including our visual materials, click here.

We’re already thinking about next year! See you in 2017.
