National Poetry Day 2018

4 October 2018

Thursday 4 October 2018, is National Poetry Day and the theme is Change.

Expect an explosion of activity nationwide, thousands of amazing events across the UK - in schools, libraries, bookshops and hospitals, on buses, trains and boats - all celebrating poetry's power to bring people together. 

In Scotland, the Scottish Poetry Library website is a great place to look for inspiration (on any day of the year).

There is also a National Poetry Day website.
