Call for submissions: National Poetry Month on

By Apartment613 on April 4, 2020



Will you start your own poetry writing project? Will you write your first poem? Will you share your poetry for the first time? That’s what National Poetry Month in Canada is all about.

In the spirit of inspiring conversation about local poets, and the many ways poetry is expressed in Ottawa, Apartment613 is inviting its readers and writers to share original poetry on the blog. Please send your work in an email to <> with “NPM” in the subject line.

We’ll publish your original poems to the blog this year. Poetry in all languages, genres and styles is welcomed. Everybody is invited to Apartment613’s digital slam, whether established artists or just starting out.

At the end of the project, Apt613 will publish to the blog and @apt613 social media this community collection of original poems. Please send your work before April 26 to be included.
