April is National Poetry Month! In fact, this April is the 20th anniversary of National Poetry Month in Canada and we are excited to start off celebrating some wonderful works of poetry by congratulating Harbour author Cornelia Hoogland, whose book, Trailer Park Elegy, has been longlisted for the League of Canadian Poets Raymond Souster Award. This award recognizes the excellence of poetry written by members of the League.

We are also excited to congratulate Nightwood Editions author Rebecca Păpucaru, whose book, The Panic Room, was longlisted for the League of Canadian Poets Gerald Lampert Memorial Award. This award is presented to a Canadian for excellence on their first book of poetry. 

The shortlisted books for the Raymond Souster Award and Gerald Lampert Memorial Award, as well as the Pat Lowther Award and Sheri-D Wilson Golden Beret Award, will be announced on Monday, April 30, 2018.
