Springs Poetic Pulse, 2016
Spring’s Poetic Pulse, 2016

While spring wasn’t officially in bloom, poetry was — as poets from across Northern and Southern Ontario ventured to Cobalt, celebrating National Poetry Month and the Spring Pulse Poetry Festival’s 9th annual poetry/arts gathering. With record attendance, and strong participation from our tri-cultural community of Francophone, Anglophone, and First Nations from both Ontario and Quebec, poetry, music, art, and storytelling flowed creating a community bridge to our linguistic and literary heritage.

Dr. Pollard Poetry Park was the annual meeting place for our group photo supplied by Lynn Gravel.
