The Enpipe Line

The Enpipe Line is 1,173 kilometers of collaborative poetry written in resistance to Enbridge's Northern Gateway Pipelines proposal and projects like it around the planet.

Initiated and hosted by Christine Leclerc, this project started on the 1st of November and keeps growing continually at the Enpipe Line Project Page.

Christine Leclerc says: "The resistance of communities, activists and cultural workers to socially and environmentally destructive projects, like Enbridge's proposed Northern Gateway Pipelines, inspire this project. I'm lucky to be able to collaborate on a project of this scale with so many inspiring people!" (there also is an interview in Geist on the project).

To contribute to the Enpipe lines, send new or existing work with date and place of creation. You can submit several times. For details, visit the guidelines.

Christine Leclerc is a Vancouver-based author and activist. She teaches Creative Writing at Langara College Continuing Studies, you can listen to her reading at the summer dream literary arts festival.
