Poem in Your Pocket Day 2021

Originally started in the United States, Poem in Your Pocket Day has its own iteration in Canada thanks to the League of Canadian Poets.

I’m so excited to have one of my previously published poems be amongst the 15 poems shared in this year’s campaign.

PIYP 2021

My poem “At Dusk” was originally selected as one of four poems in a contest to launch a new poetic form, the Prime 53, created by the editors of Prime Number Magazine.

When I discovered the Poem in Your Pocket campaign last year — which seeks short poems that people of all ages can enjoy, including school children — I felt “At Dusk” was a great fit.

It’s such a thrill to see the poem on a designed card of its own.

And it’s really neat to be a part of a community of poets with this series.
