Philip Gordon
Philip Gordon asked Margaret Atwood:

What are your thoughts on contemporary Canadian poetry, where it is, and where it should go in the future? Do you feel that poetry can still be relevant in a society that is rapidly moving past the desire for reading in general?

Margaret Atwood Hello: It seems that poetry is making something of a comeback. Have a look at the Griffin International poetry awards, and the Poetry in Voice/Les Voix de la Poésie contests for high school students… both very successful.

As to "where it should go," I wouldn't dare to say!
Margaret Atwood
