April is National Poetry Month, a time dedicated to reading, writing, speaking and promoting poetry in Canada.
To ensure that the word of National Poetry Month is heard across the country, the League of Canadian Poets sponsors readings and performances across Canada and produces a blog that features the works of LCP members.

This year, National Poetry Month will celebrate poets, libraries and the Public Lending Right Commission.
Together, they work to cultivate Canadian poetry in our communities, nurturing creators and free access to their work.
As such, the theme for the 2011 LCP National Poetry Month blog is: nurture / nourrire.
