Former Saskatchewan poet laureate Robert Currie's career launched with a contest
For Saskatchewan's former poet laureate, it all started with a contest.
Robert Currie was a young boy when he entered a writing competition in a church magazine.
It was winning that writing contest so many decades ago that put him on his path. Since then, the multiple award-winning poet of distinction has penned more than 10 books of poetry.
