Alberta through its poets

For the past six weeks, blue skies poetry has featured work by a different Alberta poet each day, as we explored the theme “Writing the Land.” Collected in celebration of the theme chosen for the 2007 Conference and AGM of the Writers Guild of Alberta, these poems have explored the keen interest writers have in praising and preserving this land, Alberta, with all its loveliness, its riches, and its paradoxes.

We hope that these poems have inspired you to slow down and pay attention, to let the land write itself under your skin, to walk with reverence, and to join your own voice in our chorus of this land.

Writing the Land Cover

blue skies poetry will be returning to its regular, somewhat irregular, schedule beginning October 22, at which time you can look forward to reading new work by Canadian and international poets once or twice a week.

In the meantime, please send your submissions of up to 3 poems in the text of an email message to This is an open call for submissions, and poems on all themes/topics are welcome. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but we do not consider previously published material. Please include a short bio with your submission.
