Writer Alert. You could be part of the public space!

Letter from the poet laureate of Toronto...

Advisory to Thunder Bay Writers and Artists and Cultural Stakeholders

I am subcontracted to the firm of BMI/Pace Architects and Planners for the redesign of the Thunder Bay waterfront. BMI has been commissioned by The City of Thunder Bay to include in their plans public art reflective of the culture and narratives of the Thunder Bay experience. I am engaged in finding appropriate texts for public surfaces and art installations, drawing from authors living or historical.

I would welcome the recommendation of authors and the submission of literary extracts for consideration in this project. The scope of the project is to enhance the quality of civic life in Thunder Bay by the showcasing of authors and citizens who speak of a loyalty and an aesthetic unique to Thunder Bay.

Please feel free to disseminate this invitation where it seems useful or to contact me or e-mail submissions to the following address;


Pier Giorgio Di Cicco
Poet Laureate of the City of Toronto
Principal, Municipal Mind
