Refine your poetry with the help of Kingston’s Poet Laureate 

Kingston Frontenac Public Library and Kingston’s Poet Laureate Jason Heroux are extending the opportunity for mentorships that will help emerging or practicing poets improve their work. 

“We’ve been fortunate to have the City support creators, and having the Poet Laureate serve as a creative leader in the community,” Jake Miller, Librarian, Adult Programming. “Having Jason serve as the Poet Laureate and being able to give time to mentoring fellow poets ensures a deep talent pool for the foreseeable future.” 

Heroux is offering hour-long, one-on-one online mentorship sessions through April and May 2022: 

  • Apr. 26, 7-8 p.m. 
  • Apr. 28, 7-8 p.m.
  • Apr. 30, 2-3 p.m. 
  • May 3, 7-8 p.m.  
  • May 5, 7-8 p.m. 
  • May 7, 2-3 p.m. 

Take advantage of this opportunity by submitting a poetry sample to poetlaureate@cityoZingston.ca. Heroux will contact those selected for a mentorship session.
