In these uncertain times, poetry fills us with hope and crystallizes our connections to one another. If you’re looking for an inspiring online event to watch and share with your students, consider our 2020 Online National Finals.
Tune in to poetryinvoice.com on Friday, April 17 at 1pm Eastern, and watch as the top 9 student reciters from across Canada lift poetry off the page and compete for $25,000 in prizes.
Meet our judges, poets Joséphine Bacon, Gwen Benaway, Anne-Marie Desmeules, Moe Clark, Pierre Nepveu, and Greg Santos, and find out who they’ve chosen as this year’s champions. Our host, former CBC Radio personality Johanne Blais, will lead the celebration and honour all 24 of our National Semifinalists. Starting today, we’ll publish two of their recitation videos per day on our social media channels — and you’ll get a taste of what’s to come!
National Finals is our favourite time of year, and although we’ve had to pivot quickly from our live show in Montréal, we have created an exciting online event that highlights the enormous accomplishments of this year’s competitors and their teachers.
Please be sure to ask your students to watch and remind them to submit their own poetry to our poetry journal, VOICES/VOIX. Our journal submission deadline is Thursday, April 30.
We hope you, your students, your families, and your communities are healthy, and we send you the luminous hope and courage of Wang Xiaoni’s poem “I Feel the Sun”:
“At last, I rush down the stairs,
pull open the door,
dash about in the spring sunlight…”
Thorn by Intisar Khanani
Hunted meets The Wrath and the Dawn in this bold fairytale retelling—where court intrigue, false identities, and dark secrets will thrill fans of classic and contemporary fantasy alike.
Princess Alyrra has always longed to escape the confines of her royal life, but when her mother betroths her to a powerful prince in a distant kingdom, she has little hope for a better future.
Until Alyrra arrives at her new kingdom, where a mysterious sorceress robs her of both her identity and her role as princess—and Alyrra seizes on the opportunity to start a new life for herself as a goose girl.
But as Alyrra uncovers dangerous secrets about her new world, including a threat to the prince himself, she knows she can’t remain silent forever. With the fate of the kingdom at stake, Alyrra is caught between two worlds, and ultimately must decide who she is and what she stands for.
