YYC POP: Poetic Portraits of People is the Legacy Project of Poet Laureate Sheri-D Wilson.

If a city is characterized by the people who live there, as Calgary transforms, it is important to acknowledge who we are as we grow and change. With this idea in mind, we asked the community to write about someone who represents or captures the essence of Calgary as we are today.

Learn about the city by the poetic portraits of the people!
Extraordinary Stories of Ordinary People
Ordinary Stories of Extraordinary People

Who are we? What is our identity? Who are we as a city? Who are the people that live here? What are their stories? How will we build a new future together?

The response we received was awe-inspiring, which meant we divided the submissions in half. Half are published in this book – the other half appear in the On-Line Exhibit – www.sheridwilson.com.
