There are plenty of Canadian journals who publish Canadian poetry, reviews and essays and they all serve the purpose of fostering the Canadian identity and promoting Canadian culture. The Dandelion, Arc, and Taddle Creek Magazine are just a sampling of many journals from Nova Scotia to British Columbia who showcase Canadian poetic talent. This of course is a worthy cause and there are plenty of fine Canadian poets who do not get the attention they deserve outside of Canada. Granted some are publishing in the UK as well as getting book deals in Germany and Italy and so on. But have you heard of them? Probably not; poetry is a rare and savage bird. So many scrap over so little.
