Scripted Inspiration

Scripted Inspiration

Scripted Inspirations is the name for the collection of winning poetry from the sixteenth (2011) Northern Ontario Poetry Competition co-sponsored by White Mountain Publications, New Liskeard, ON

In keeping with the Canadian Authors Association motto of "Writers Helping Writers", this annual competition encourages and assists the development of new and existing poetic talents in the Northern Ontario region as defined by Canada Post's postal code beginning with the letter P. (See map)

Winners were carefully chosen from the 69 entries received from across Northern Ontario Postal Code P. The postal strike looming over the deadline was perhaps unfortunate, but those who entered had a better chance for inclusion.

Launch was to be in Sudbury, ON this year, but rather than cancel it due to my broken ribs, we have re-booked it closer to home. It will be in the Valley Room at the Quality Inn, Highway 11 North, New Liskeard, ON on Saturday September 10, 2011 at from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm We will try for Sudbury next year.
