Our Season Of Silver!! Let’s Celebrate 25 Years of The Stroll of Poets!!

Standard Candles Wins!
The Stroll of Poets would like to congratulation Alice Major for winning the 2016 Robert Kroetsch Award for Poetry, as part of the Alberta Book Awards, for her book Standard Candles.

Standard Candles was also shortlisted for the WGA’s Stephan G. Stephansson Award for Poetry as well as the League of Canadian Poets’ Raymond Souster Award.

 Well deserved recognition for an excellent book and poet!




This year we are twenty-five years young and to make our Season of Silver memorable we are looking for volunteers to help plan some events. We’ll be holding an organizational meeting on Thursday, September 29 at 7 pm. The location is the Woodcroft (Westmount) Library, 13420-114 Avenue. If you would like to join us, pass on your ideas or obtain more information contact John Leppard at leppardjohn@hotmail.com



The Haven committee invites you to launch our 25th anniversary season in true Stroll of Poets style. It will glitter and shine and like fine mellow wine, it will tease the poetic palates of all. Bring along your poems that celebrate our brilliant past, or that mention the number 25 or that find creative ways to rhyme with silver!

Join us for the launch of the 2016-2017 season on Monday, September 12th at 7 p.m at The Upper Crust (10909 – 86 Avenue). It will be a night of open mics and silver tongues!

25 years of radiance and poetic celebration

The marriage between artists and words

May this union continue to shine in splendour!!
