Our popular poetry competition returns in 2017 to feature readings by 20 of Canada’s emerging and established poets.
IFOA Director Geoffrey E. Taylor, Juno award winning recording artist and dub poet Lillian Allen and 2016 Poetry NOW winner Chris Chambers will select the night’s winner. NOW Magazine’s Susan G. Cole will host.
Winner will receive an automatic invitation to read at the 38th edition of the International Festival of Authors AND an ad for their book and IFOA event in NOW Magazine!
Poetry NOW is presented in partnership with NOW Magazine.
I will be one of the 20 poets to throw their poems in the ring. Come cheer the poets, troubadours, gladiators, town criers etc.
