Home Town of Milton Acorn


Milton James Rhode Acorn, nicknamed The People’s Poet by his peers, was a poet, writer, and playwright. He was born in Charlottetown in 1923 and died here in 1986.

In the middle 1960s, he became well known as a passionate and argumentative member of the literary and journalistic underground. Acorn was honoured by fellow poets with a specially created People’s Poet Award, which recognized his ability as a writer as well as his nationalist and activist stance.

In 1987, the Milton Acorn People’s Poetry Award was established in his memory.

Milton Acorn’s resting spot is in the Anglican cemetery on St. Peter’s Road in Charlottetown.
