POETRY CANADA FEEDBACK
Oneal Walters - AgeBegins Books
As an advertiser, Oneal got a sneak peek at the next issue of Poetry Canada magazine.
Here is what is in store for you.
"I truly like the poem, Our Windows, by David Fraser. It reminds me of an element that I
enjoy within poetry; the ability to think.
Canada has lost a great poet, Irving Layton, who was a genius. I'm glad that you (Poetry Canada)
acknowledge Layton's contributions to Canada.
Squawk vs Talk reveals so much about you (Tracy), your love for words and for individual
creativity. Also, Squawk vs Talk depicts the current social situation which is a movement
towards non verbal communication. More speakers are necessary and bold speakers as well.
Our city, Toronto, and on a larger scale, Canada, can't remain a place that lacks brave speakers.
If it does, then Irving Layton is truly forgotten."

This is the month where I see the light at the end of winter's tunnel.
The days get longer, sun shines brighter, and I usually take a well-deserved
break with my family. This month will bring the next edition of Poetry
Canada which I am sure you will enjoy. The poetry submissions are outstanding,
which makes being selected, precious. This edition features the cover art of
Charlotte Nicolin's "Out on a Limb".
If you haven't become a member yet of The Canadian Federation of Poets, getting a free one-year
subscription to Poetry Canada Magazine alone is worth the fee. Add this to the over 20 or so
benefits, and you really get your money's worth. It is a good action to take for your poetry
career this year.
