From April 1, 2023 to June 1, 2023, the Aspiring Canadian Poets Contest is accepting entries for the 2013 contest. Originally started in 2012, the Aspiring Canadian Poets Contest is a way for unpublished poets to get attention. With the goal of recognizing and helping to develop these poets, this contest offers the winner a chance to have their first poem published on the Aspiring Canadian Poets Contest website, a listing of their names in Quill and Quire and private online mentoring sessions with the contest judge (valued at $1,000 between the three winners). The contest judge in 2013 is poet Shannon Bramer. To view the contest details, please visit the contest website. Also see submission requirements here.

The Poetry Post series is written and organized by Megan Philipp, Open Book: Ontario's Editorial Intern. Having completed the Publishing Certificate Program at Ryerson University, she is pursuing a career in publishing. She also writes and edits for The Mindful Word, an online magazine focused on mindfulness and engaged living.

In celebration of National Poetry Month, Open Book: Ontario will be posting a Poetry Post each week day. Do you have a poetry-related link that you think we should know about? Please send it to [email protected].
