Spreading the Roots and Reach of the Living Tree

By Jorge Antonio Vallejos

Early this year I was commissioned to write a poem for the SPINLAW conference, 30 Years Under the Living Tree: Reflections on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, that took place March 16 2013 at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto.

I wrote four posts about my writing process for this poem:

When Commissioned To Write A Poem part One and part  Two.

Points To Ponder When Commissioned To Write A Poem

It’s About Community, Not Competetion #2

I also did a VLOG about things to consider  if and when commissioned to write a poem:

When Commissioned To Write A Poem…

And a VLOG about the help I got from fellow poet Whitney French for the poem:

It’s About Community, Not Competetion #2.

Attached below is the video of me reading the poem at the conference!
