Celebration of Canadian Poetry

In 2015 Brick Books celebrated its 40th anniversary! For over 40 years we have been proud to published well-known poets such as Michael Ondaatje, Anne Carson, Dennis Lee, Robert Kroetsch and P.K. Page, in addition to publishing the first books of poets Karen Solie, Julie Bruck, Adam Dickinson, Sue Sinclair, Jan Zwicky, Phil Hall, Sue Goyette and Steven Price. We chose to celebrate 40 years of publishing through a broad conversation about Canadian poetry!! For more than a year we featured articles about Canadian poets and Canadian Poetry. With contributions from poets, novelists, teachers, publishers, booksellers, musicians, readers, doctors, media people, and more, The Celebration of Canadian Poetry was an opportunity to highlight the diversity and depth of poetry from across Canada by those who know it best. Below you’ll find the collection of all the contributions published as part of the celebration.
