April is Poetry Month, and we're excited to celebrate all things verse this month. We're kicking things off with a great contest courtesy of the good folks at one of Canada's most acclaimed and iconic publishers of poetry, Coach House Books.
Enter for your chance to win a prize pack with all three of the titles below and make your Poetry Month one to remember. And if you've been working on your own poetry, don't miss this handy how-to guide for putting together a gorgeous poetry chapbook by our April writer in residence Matthew James Weigel, (whose incredible debut collection is included in this prize pack).
The Coach House Books Poetry Month contest prize pack:
- Whitemud Walking by Matthew James Weigel
- Exhibitionist by Molly Cross-Blachard
- Entering Sappho by Sarah Dowling
To enter, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Coach House Poetry Month contest" and your full mailing address. For one (1) bonus entry, let us know a favourite poetry collection you've read.
To be considered, entries must be received by 11:59pm on Sunday, April 10, 2022. Contest open to Canadian residents only; one entry per person (apart from bonus entries described above). One winner will be chosen at random and contacted via email.
Good luck and happy Poetry Month to everyone who enters!
