The Hamilton Poetry Centre is pleased to sponsor five Canadian poets to read for us during the 2016/17 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 are hosting two open readings open to all Hamilton area poets.

For more information please read below and follow the links.
