The Hamilton Poetry Centre is pleased to sponsor six Canadian poets to read for us during the 2017/18 season. Everyone welcome!

There will now be an open mic session before each reading! Interested? Arrive at 7pm to sign up. You may read one poem (no longer than one page). The HPC will accommodate as many as readers as possible on a first-come first-served basis.

In addition to these five public readings by sponsored poets, we invite all Hamilton area poets to participate in an Open Reading in May.

For more information please read below and follow the links.
