Fredericton / Calendar / Poetic Places App Launch
Westminster Books

Fredericton, NB

Poetic Places Fredericton is an upcoming mobile app which uses push notifications to let the user know when they have stumbled across a location within Fredericton which has inspired a poem by a poet with ties to the city.

Locations which have a significant relationship to the poet, such as the Bliss Carman House, are also included in the app.

Although the app is designed to encourage users to get out and explore the capital city, the poems can be accessed and enjoyed at any time. The app also provides a short biography and selected bibliography for each poet, as well as information about the locations and what they have to offer.

Fredericton is known across Canada as Poet’s Corner due to its rich literary history, claiming such names as Bliss Carman, M. Travis Lane, and Sheree Fitch.

Poetic Places Fredericton hopes to play an important role in this strong literary community by celebrating the city's brightest minds."
