Tightrope has established an important cross-country initiative to engage authors writing from specific socio-cultural backgrounds. Our new “Meet Me in/Writers on Rights” event brings poets and presses together in a different Canadian city each year to read and discuss poetry on human rights issues. In 2015, Meet Me was held in Winnipeg and in 2016 Meet Me was held in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Our most recent Meet Me took place in Toronto at the Aga Khan Museum.
