Poetry Post: A CanLit Quiz for National Poetry Month

Share |

CBC Books is celebrating National Poetry Month with a CanLit Quiz devoted entirely to tricky questions about Canadian poetry. Included throughout the quiz are videos from the CBC archives and YouTube of poets reading their own poems. Do you know which Montreal poet was born Israel Lazarovitch? Can you guess the name of the Canadian poet who has their own brand of coffee? Can you name the prominent Canadian poet who co-founded House of Anansi Press? Click here to take the quiz and to find out how much you really know about Canadian poetry.

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].
