So the latest news is that I’ll be taking part in the CBC Poetry Face-Off for 2009. This is a nation wide competition that has participating poets write a poem centered around a theme chosen by event organizers. This year poets are to work with “flight” as a starting point. Any interpretaton of the theme is possible, leaving scores of opportunities for good poetry. I’ve already taken a stab at my entry, but it still hasn’t emerged from the shop as yet.
For extra information as the event nears (March 12 is the date for regional entries) you can visit the official website here.
