National Poetry Day 2019
30 September 2019
National Poetry Day is a UK-wide celebration of
poetry taking place every October. This year is its 25th
anniversary and it takes place on Thursday 3 October. Each year
there's a different theme and this year it is Truth.
National Poetry Day generates 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. See the National Poetry Day website.
One of the many events taking place is the 'Sweetshop of Words'
at the Scottish Poetry Library. For more information and details of
