Dear  World Poets and supporters.

We are currently looking for poets, musicians, writers, filmmakers, multimedia artists, artists and dancers to become part of a World Poetry Youth Team with poets from different cultures and languages. In April 2013, the team will be the principal hosts of the World Poetry Canada International Festival at UBC. The new monthly venue at UBC is in a beautiful room with audio visual equipment.

Since we are a society, we have to ask for membership fees of $30.00 per year. If that is a problem, please let us know. We are all volunteers and donate our time to support our World Poetry family. However, the money goes for awards, hosting and domain costs, awards, pins, insurance and medallions as well as paper and ink for certificates etc.
