In case you missed it, I've been curating poems for National Poetry Month over at the Chaudiere Books blog (there are other activities on the site apart from that, of course, including the weekly "Six Questions: series of interviews with current and former Ottawa-based writers), and this year had our seventh annual selection of poems, with a new piece posting every day. Isn't that exciting? See this year's list below, and prior lists here, if such intrigues. Enjoy!
