Meet the Team
The Canadian Federation of Poets was founded by president Tracy Repchuk and is the founding federation in a global community of poets and poetry lovers. Federations and their members from around the world can post messages, "meet" via our forums and live chats, and learn about themselves and their international colleagues with regard to poetry. More than this, the CFP exists to unite international communities and artists in the celebration of all that is important to us as poets and as people living in an ever-changing world.
Learn, live, write, read, join! Above all else - simply enjoy your visit!
