“Poem in Your Pocket Day,” Poetry & Healing #NPM2020
April 30, 2020
On April 30, 2020, Poetry and Healing presents “Poem in Your Pocket” day. The League of Canadian Poets will publish each of the featured poems in the Poetry and Healing series online to celebrate the close of #NPM2020.
What is Poetry and Healing? It’s the League of Canadian Poets’ inaugural fundraiser for Sick Kids Hospital. Over the month of April, twelve poets share recordings of their poetry and discuss the healing journey of writing, reading, listening, and meditation.
The roster of poets includes Al Moritz, Luciano Iacobelli, Kate Marshall Flaherty, Lois Lorimer, Daniel David Moses, Ronna Bloom, Rajinderpal Pal, Catherine Graham, Dr. Conor McDonnell, Jacob Shier, Ayesha Chatterjee, and Corrado Paina.
The event takes place all month at Poetry and Healing: http://poets.ca/poetry-and-healing/ as part of the League’s National Poetry Month celebrations #NPM2020. You can also visit the League on Facebook!
