Poetry Invites

Poetry Invites April

Inspired By Our Friends, Family, and Neighbours

This month we focus our poetry on writing about the people in our community. Who inspires you? It can be someone you know well or someone you secretly admire.

Write a poem for Cobourg Present, our evolving eChapbook. Based on the recent news headlines it looks like we are facing another lockdown. We miss our gatherings. Let’s connect to our common humanity and the heart of our community through poetry.

Feel free to write about someone from any period in time. Do you have an ancestor who lived in Cobourg? Or can you imagine what your grandchild will be like in the future? Maybe there is someone who you’ve longed for or someone who has been a big help over the last year. Think about all the people in your life and what you would say to them in a poem.

Let’s write about our neighbours, essential workers, or community group leaders. Our aim is to capture the spirit of the people who light up our lives.
