Posted in National Poetry Day 2017

National Poetry Day is September 28th!

National Poetry Day is almost upon us – this year the theme is FREEDOM.

If you visit the National Poetry Day website, you will find poems on all types of freedom and activities to inspire you.

You’ll also find details of events in your area, and if you are holding an event yourself, you can download poster packs and logos to advertise it.

If you are a school, toolkits, teaching resources and posters are available.

There are also display materials and posters for libraries and booksellers.

Forward Arts Foundation organises National Poetry Day, and the link to all the goodies is here.

And you will find resources and links on this blog as well.
