Vaughan Poetry Map - Explore Vaughan through Poetry

Vaughan Public Libraries is committed to advocating for literacy and lifelong learning. In celebration of Vaughan's 25th Anniversary and National Poetry Month in April 2016, Vaughan Public Libraries has created a Vaughan Poetry Map as a platform for all local poets and poetry lovers to share and showcase their poems.

The Vaughan Poetry Map celebrates Vaughan’s culture, heritage, and geographical beauty through poems and images. It is an interactive map that links poems about Vaughan onto the map’s specific locations mentioned in the poems.

We continuously invite submissions from all poets and poetry lovers. Make use of this unique e-publishing opportunity and submit your entries!
