Poetry Invites May

Inspired By Our Food, Farms, and Eateries

When I moved to Cobourg over ten years ago, it was the food that surprised me most. We live in a delicious region!

Write a poem for Cobourg Present, our evolving eChapbook.

This month you are invited to write a poem about food. What inspires you about the food of Cobourg and Northumberland?

Food is central to how we express our culture. Food becomes part of traditions and celebrations. We are lucky to live in a region that is filled with people who are passionate about good food.

Maybe you want to write about a local business or a trip to the Farmer’s Market (which opens in a week!) Or maybe you want to write about a memorable meal shared with friends. Perhaps it’s the beautiful farmland that inspires you or picking apples at one of our local orchards.

Let’s celebrate the most delicious parts of life here!

You are also welcome to revisit a prompt from an earlier month and submit a poem at any time. Click here to see the archive of prompts.
