Congratulations, Lesley Fletcher, newly appointed Executive Director of the League of Canadian Poets!

Good news, this National Poetry Month: Canada’s national poetry organization has found their new Executive Director in Lesley Fletcher who previously worked for the League as a Administrative and Communications Coordinator. In their press release, the League of Canadian Poets describes Lesley as “a literature-obsessed graduate of the Creative Book Publishing Program at Humber College, and has worked in many parts of the Canadian literary industry, including as a bookseller, a freelance writer and editor, a social media manager for self-published authors, and with the Book and Periodical Council.”

Now that’s the League has lured her back from the Retail Council of Canada, Lesley says she’s “looking forward to working … to create even more opportunities to support Canadian Poetry.” Arc is looking forward to it as well.
