for Peoples Poetry
In memory of Milton Acorn and Ted Plantos
The Acorn-Plantos Award for People's Poetry is presented annually to a Canadian poet based on a book published in the previous calendar year (in the present case, 2006).
The work should follow in the tradition of Acorn, Livesay, Purdy, Plantos, and others by being accessible to all people in its use of language and image.
The award is open to any living poet who is a Canadian citizen or landed immigrant. The work may be entered by the poet or the publisher. The award itself honours the poet. The award consists of $500 (Canadian) and a medallion.
Deadline: 30 June 2007. Entry fee: $25 per title. Send entry fee plus five (5) copies of the book to the address below. Cheques payable to: Acorn-Plantos Award
