CanLit Poets won the 2009 Canadian Online Publishing Award for best Cross-Platform (Academic and B2B).
Canadian Literature has always published poems along with its critical articles. We would like to encourage young Canadian students both to write poetry and to learn how to read it more critically. In fact, we think these two processes are intertwined.
This collection of poems, with questions answered by the poets about their writing process and experiences with poetry, is intended to be appealing to high school students and to be useful for high school teachers both of creative writing and of literature. One focus is on the poet's early writing experiences, including those in high school, as well as advice they would give to high school writers.
Our aim is to encourage high school students and teachers to use it as a resource to better appreciate the great writing that is going on in Canada now.
