Canadian poets go digital to redefine their craft

Arman Kazemi is a writer and journalist from Vancouver currently working with the CBC Community desk in Toronto. He has an interest in writing on contemporary literature and new media.

About a week ago I tweeted a group of Canadian poets asking their thoughts on what it means to be a poet in the digital era. 

I didn't hear back from everyone I reached out to, but the number of responses I did get from people commenting and retweeting was far greater than I expected.
