Heart of a Poet is a documentary ‘series in 23 verses', with each episode profiling the life, inspiration and performances of a working Canadian poet. Each episode throws a spotlight on an individual poet, from established award-winners including George Elliott Clarke, Christian Bök, Lillian Allen and bill bissett to rising literary stars. Heart of a Poet introduces the featured artists and their writing through interviews, spontaneous recitations in and around their communities, readings at the renowned Art Bar Poetry Series in Toronto, and the many experiences both large and small that fill their days and help shape their poems. It's a hip series that takes viewers inside the poetry community, in all its various forms, alternate incarnations and unfettered diversity. “Heart of a Poet is that rare thing, a new and funky literary series.” - John Doyle, Toronto Globe and Mail
