Ottawa’s English Poet Laureate

It is with humility and utmost gratitude that I accept the position of Ottawa’s English Poet Laureate from 2017-2019. I am pleased to honour this tradition of literary excellence and aspire  to reflect the passion and  dedication that citizens and poets of this nation’s capital have continuously demonstrated. Thank you to the city of Ottawa, Jim Watson, Verse Ottawa and the selection committee for entrusting me with this role. I look forward to serving our community and the cultural initiatives ahead. In love and poetry,
Jamaal Jackson Rogers
