Established in 1983, the Hamilton Poetry Centre works to support and encourage the writing and appreciation of poetry. Located in Hamilton, Ontario, the Hamilton Poetry Centre conducts workshops and hosts readings.


Welcome to the Hamilton Poetry Centre’s 2018/2019 Season

Our workshop series begins September 13. Follow the link for more information. This is a great opportunity to receive thoughtful peer feedback on your poems in progress.

In addition HPC will be sponsoring Open Readings this year! These are always fun evenings, and a great way to share your work. Everyone is welcome to attend and/or read. These events are FREE! Please check the readings section of this website for upcoming dates and locations
