Thank you to VIU’s Creative Writing and Digital Media Departments, for assisting in the creation and maintenance of the Poetree.

And thank YOU— those who come to browse, or to submit poems!

VIU’s Poetree accepts submissions from VIU students, faculty, and staff. Please note that not every poem submitted will be posted, as the tree only puts out a limited number of blossoms each month.


VIU Poetree only accepts original poems. You may submit to a maximum of three poems per month. Each poem should not exceed 46 lines. Please attach your poem(s) as a .doc file, and label it with your name, title of the poem, and your position at VIU: student, faculty, or staff.

To submit, click on the Submit tab (above).

As the seasons change, the Poetree must lose some of its poems in order to make room for new ones! But don't worry! All poems are carefully picked, collected, and stored here! Feel free to browse through our collection! Click on a link to view poem.
