Hear the 2013 festival poets
Poets from all across Canada plus as far afield as the UK came to Yukon for the Whitehorse Poetry Festival in June 2013.  Listen to CBC Airplay interviews with some of them: Jo Shapcott, Stephanie Bolster, Garry Thomas Morse, Brad Cran and Dina Del Bucchia.

Where are we?
We're in the north. Whitehorse is in Canada's Yukon, above the 60th parallel. Our territory stretches over the Arctic Circle and if we're lucky we have snow for at least five months a year.
