The League of Canadian Poets celebrates our short-listed poets, the literary community, and excellence in poetry with a luncheon and ceremony announcing the winners of our prestigious awards. The Gerald Lampert Memorial Award recognizes a first book of poetry published by a Canadian writer. The Pat Lowther Memorial Award is awarded for a book of poetry published by a Canadian woman. The Raymond Souster Award is presented for a book of poetry published by a League member. The Sheri-D Wilson Golden Beret Award honours a Canadian spoken word artist who has made a substantial contribution to the development of spoken word. The League will also make a presentation on its 50th Anniversary, following the Awards.
This event is open only to LCP members in good standing.
