The CanLit Poets will no longer be updated as the project has been completed. The content will remain online and we hope to further develop this project in the future.
Welcome to CanLit Poets!
CanLit Poets is a freely available, ongoing, online archive geared towards motivating the next generation of Canadian poets. The poems in this archive have all been published in the pages of Canadian Literature, and the response questions have been answered by the poet themselves.
