Join Comox Valley Poet Laureate, Natalie Nickerson, at the Courtenay Library on Tuesday, Sept 26th at 6pm in a writer’s workshop that explores the light as it shines on the Canadian Landscape during Raise-A-Reader Week. 
 
Whether you grew up in Canada or not, Natalie will guide you toward creating a poem about the Canadian Landscape. All poems with connections to Canada have the opportunity to be entered in a contest curated by VIRL in collaboration with Nanaimo Poet Laureate, Tina Biello, in an effort to collect and publish an anthology of poems celebrating Canada from each of the 39 branches.
Submissions are accepted until October 1 at [email protected].
