The Cottage Life Al Purdy Potty Poetry Contest early bird draw

April 1, 2015, 12:00 AM

Cottagers love potty poems! Potty poems tell guests how not to gum up the septic system. Almost every cottage has a potty poem hanging in the bathroom. Write a new classic potty poem for a chance to win! Prizes include cash, signed Purdy first editions, and the winning poem will be posted in the A-frame and published in Cottage Life.
Sponsored by Cottage Life and the Al Purdy A-frame Association, which is restoring Al’s iconic cottage as a writers’ retreat. The Purdy cabin is a national literary treasure, where Al wrote and entertained such CanLit giants as Margaret Laurence, Milton Acorn, and Michael Ondaatje.

The contest’s all-star judges are:
