“it didn’t happen here” is the winner of the League of Canadian Poets National Broadsheet contest, and was selected by judge D.A. Lockhart for its “strong images, and captivating lyric voice.” Lockhart also states, “It’s nature speaks to the sort of experiential empathy that would do much to our world.” – D.A. Lockhart
In addition to being crafted into the above artisan broadsheet by Briar Craig, “it didn’t happen here” will be published in the League of Canadian Poets 2019 Poem in Your Pocket booklet on April 18, plus it will also be released as a postcard. You can also read the poem as featured on today’s Poetry Pause.
