Gary Hyland has been writing and publishing in Saskatchewan since the 60's. With his poetry and his generosity, he has touched and changed (for the better) many other poets. So it isn't surprising that a group of poets got together to say publicly what we all know in our hearts, Gary Hyland is a remarkable poet and it's about time he was given more recognition for his work. Many poets think of Gary Hyland as "The Poet's Poet" and to this end The Poets' Poet Award Group have established The Poet's Poet Award. This award will be presented to Gary on December 5, 2007 in Regina. To accomodate the proclamation of the Poet's Poet Award and to give poets and readers of poetry an opportunity to comment on Gary's work, a new website has now been launched as of Wednesday, November 7th, 2007: www.garyhylandpoetspoet.ca. All writers and readers are encouraged to check out this site to learn more about this amazing poet. Watch for more information about the presentation of The Poet's Poet Award at "O Hagios Night" on December 5th at the Exchange in Regina.
