Poet Laureate of Toronto invites poems from secondary students

September 22, 2016 at 8:00 am Leave a comment

The Poet Laureate of Toronto, Anne Michaels, is inviting secondary school students across TDSB to help create a city-wide poem in celebration of Canada’s Sesquicentennial. Through their teachers, students are invited to submit 10 lines of poetry celebrating Canada’s 150th birthday.

Each school is asked to determine a selection process to choose their best fifteen stanzas for submission.  These 150 stanzas will form a single, city-wide poem to be read at a spectacular celebration at Toronto City Hall during the last week of April, 2017. The best 150 stanzas will form a single, city-wide poem to be published as a “poem in a box” where the stanzas will be able to be shuffled like a deck, and read in any order to symbolize equality and diversity.*  The “poem in a box” will be distributed to all Toronto public libraries – a wonderful way for these selected students to see their work published and distributed across Toronto. Each participating school will receive two copies of the “poem in a box” for their school library.

For further information please refer to the Letter to Secondary Administrators.  To submit please refer to the Submission Form.
