2020 was the first year that The Miramichi Reader started reviewing poetry on a regular basis, therefore this is also the first year that we are giving out “The Very Best!” Book Awards in this category. While all of this year’s winners hail from Atlantic Canada, there is so much great poetry being written all across Canada. It looks like poetry at The Miramichi Reader is here to stay!
- GOLD: New Brunswick by Shane Neilson (Biblioasis)
- SILVER: Squall: Poems in the Voice of Mary Shelley by Chad Norman (Guernica Editions)
- BRONZE: Cold Fire: Selected Poetry by Donna Allard (Skywing Press)
