Contest for Canadian poets


If you are a Canadian Christian poet, currently living and writing in Canada you have exactly a week and a day to get your entry into the current Utmost Canadian Christian Poetry Contest - deadline October 31.

The theme for this contest is "Canadian Landscape" and is explained on Utmost's Canadian site:

Your winning poem will excel in imagery and language. It will be clearly Canadian in the landscape it shares with readers. (Think of it as "A. Y. Jackson in poetry!") Religious content not required, although it is welcome in the context of the theme.

So if you're as in love with your part of Canada as L. M. Montgomery was with Prince Edward Island, or Farley Mowat with the prairies - put it into writing.
