Editorial Notes

At the 2014 annual national finals of Poetry Recitation Contest to be held in Vancouver on the evening of May 9 by one of our most honourable Partners Poetry In Voice ( ), a Canadian national non-profit organization that encourages students to engage with poetry, the organizer will be announcing to their students that they can submit their English poems and their French poems with English translations for consideration to Pacific Poetry. They will also promote this opportunity on Facebook and Twitter after our National Finals event. To further promote interest in poetry among Canadian teenagers or students, we are hereby making another open call for poetry submission to our SPECIAL COLLECTION: POETRY CANATEEN:: 


In our upcoming summer issue,
we will feature a group of poems written by Canadian teens
to promote interest in poetry 
among Canadian teenagers/ high school students.
In addition to those listed under our normal guidelines,
here are a few more things to note:
Title: Canateen Poetry: A Special Collection
Date of Release: August 5, 2014.
Deadline for Submissions: July 31, 2014.

[sorry, no monetary payment for publication]
Qualification: Any teenager studying or living in Canada

for more detail or guidelines, please see our

Another important thing: beginning from now, we will follow it as a new rule that once accepted or published in our e.Journal, a poem or artwork will be un-cancelable or un-removable, as it is to be archived permanently on our Site. The reason is simple: for the past few issues, there have been an increasing number of cases where the author requested us to cancel or remove an accepted or published piece (supposedly for other uses). Thus far we have been ready and glad to accommodate such requests, for we are happy to serve as a step stone for authors to achieve more fame by getting their work published in other more prestigious magazines or anthologies; however, because Allen is now too busy with his studies at UBC to spend time on PP while Changming's health condition is forcing him to minimize his time with a computer, our limiting human resources simply do not allow us to continue this unnecessary service. After all, what's done cannot be undone.

In this issue, we are honoured to spotlight 2 poetry editors and feature 57 poets. 

Thanks much for your continuing support!


With all very best for a special spring,

- PP Editorial Team
