The Poet’s Pulpit and Poet’s Pulpit Press were the brainchildren of the late nocturnal poet Jeffrey Allan Saturday. Founded in 2004, a year before his death, Saturday had spent the better part of his life struggling with the blank white page before he decided to lay down his pen and liquidate his vast collection of rare and antiquated Canadian Poetry.

An intoxicated Saturday was last seen alive Thursday August 11, 2005, at the base of the Champlain monument in Ottawa; reading aloud from "Among the Millet", Archibald Lampman’s first book of poetry. His body was found a week later floating in Dows Lake. He is buried in Beechwood Cemetery alongside some of his favourite poets.

Poetry, by giving dignity and utterance to our distress, enables us to hope, makes compassion reasonable - Irving Layton
