Encore for city’s poetic position

Liz Zetlin is back as Owen Sound’s poet laureate for 2008.

“I’m so pleased that it’s still being sponsored,” Zetlin said of the position. “I hope it can become permanent.”

She said Monday she’s looking forward to continuing to feature a poet with Grey-Bruce connections each month in The Sun Times. She also plans to work on an online poets gallery through the paper’s website, which will feature previous poets of the month and also allow people to submit their own work.

She is also doing research for an online map of poets laureate across Canada, which will feature about 24 poets laureate past and present. The project should enter the web design phase this year.
