Poems for Obama
Calling all Canadian poets!
CBC is putting together 49 songs for Obama, calling it Obama’s Playlist. The Powell River Live Poets’ Guild is doing the same, but with poetry! We need poems from all kinds of poets on what it means to be Canadian so we can compile 49 of them into a book and send them to the President-Elect as an inauguration gift.
The book won’t be finished in time for the 20th, but we’ve told the President-Elect what we’re doing, and the book will get there soon afterwards. We need Canadian poems! Poems on Canada, Canadian identity — what do you want to say to the 44th president?
Please send all poems to mettalaw [at] gmail [dot] com. Include whatever name you want to appear with your poem!
Please also include words something like these: “I declare that I am the author of the submitted poem(s) and I give the Powell River Live Poets’ Guild permission to publish, without charge, my submitted poem(s) on the “Poems for Obama” blog and in the book of 49 Canadian poems for Obama, however titled, provided I am credited with authorship on the poem(s).”
When the poems are together and ready and the book is printed, we’ll have it signed by as many included poets as possible and then send it to Obama.
So what do you say? Are you with us? Pass on the word!
