During his time as Parliamentary Poet Laureate, Fred Wah created a collection of resources for teachers and students of Canadian poetry. The collection features a series of videos on YouTube of poets reading their work, and accompanying PDFs that contain the poems, questions and prompts for classroom use.
Wah’s project serves as great accompaniment to the content we have on CanLit Guides—for example, our guide to
Poetic Visuality and Experimentation. We encourage you to check out our guide and apply what you’ve learned to the poems in Wah’s
Poetry Connection: Link Up with Canadian Poetry video series!
