The Office of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario has created a new website for the Poet Laureate of Ontario. Visit the site to learn about Randell Adjei, Ontario's first Poet Laureate, and to connect with poetry from across the province.
On the new website, you can read Randell's biography, poetry, and select media coverage. You can also learn about other Ontarian poets in the Featured poets area, where Randell will highlight writers and their work.
Connect with the poetry community. Find a list of poetry resources and Poets Laureate from around the province, or check out the event listings to see poetry in action. (These are mostly online for now, but the page will include in-person events when we can gather again.)
You can engage with Randell on the site, too. Randell will post to the blog area, including poetry prompts to inspire creativity. You can submit poetry for him to read that may be chosen for publication on the site.
The website for Ontario’s Poet Laureate provides a way into the province's poetry community. Whether you are a writer, a reader, or someone who is just discovering the art, you are invited to explore.
