National Poetry Day
National Poetry Day is the annual mass celebration on the first Thursday of October that encourages everyone to make, experience and share poetry with family and friends. Each year people come together to celebrate voices, words and stories that help to bridge understanding in our communities. In 2023 it will be celebrated on October 5 with the theme of Refuge.
Find out more by visiting the National Poetry Day website.
For celebrations in Scotland, a great starting point is the Scottish Poetry Library.
