Why do we have a reading season? Back in 2014, we started to streamline the submission process due to the increasing number of poetry submissions we receive. We now include an external jury of experts to help us select work that represents the best in Canadian poetry and ensure a more impartial process. (Please note that the competition is open to Canadians citizens or landed immigrants.)
Spread the word! Better yet, submit your manuscript!
