Poems of the Week Website

The Parliamentary Poet Laureate, Mrs. Pauline Michel,
is proud to announce that the « Poems of the Week »
website is now again online. Mrs. Michel has
relaunched this website dedicated to Canadian poets
and their poems on June 5th. This project has been set
up by the previous Poet laureate, Mr. George Bowering,
in 2002.

From now on and until the end of Mrs. Michels mandate
on November 16th, readers will have access to poems
written by 48 living Canadian poets invited to share
their poetry. These poets come from all around the
country, they are from several ethnic origins, they
are women as well as men. Their work is already well
known or will soon be. French writers and English
writers are equally represented.

Two new poems will be available each week : one in
French, the other in English. Previous poems will
remain online in the archive section so readers can
read them until the end of the project.

Visit this out of the ordinary website, which makes
the promotion of Canadian poets and  contributes in
its way to the Canadian literature radiance.
