Bywords in the 20th Century

From 1990 until 2001, the group published poetry and a literary events calendar, making Bywords the longest running publication of its kind in Canada. In addition they published two anthologies and co-sponsored the Jane Jordon Poetry Contest. Renowned poets from Ottawa’s literary community have appeared in Bywords including Stephanie Bolster, Mark Frukin, Colin Morton, Russell Smith, John Barton, and Rob Mclennan. New poets, such as Adrienne Ho whose poems were published in Bywords when she was a recent graduate of Canterbury High School, have become well known authors receiving awards for their work. Former Bywords volunteers have included published poets and editors Gwen Guth, Susan Robertson, Maria Scala, and film maker/fiction writer, Ian Driscoll.
