National Poetry Day 2020

30 September 2020

National Poetry Day is the annual mass celebration on the first Thursday of October that encourages all to enjoy, discover and share poetry.

This year, National Poetry Day takes place on Thursday 1 October 2020, and the theme is Vision. We encourage you to get involved with activities nationwide on the day.

The Scottish Poetry Library usually stages exuberant celebrations to mark the date, but this year it has a brilliant online alternative - a special film featuring John Hegley.
