Yes, National Poetry Day has been running for 25 years and this year there will be big, ongoing celebrations!
The National Poetry Day Ambassadors have received their National Poetry Day badges, and there’s no prizes for guessing which one I like best. I’ll give you a clue, it’s yellow and has a dog on.
National Poetry Day will be Thursday, October 3rd, and theme this year is Truth.
If you have any poetry events happening in relation to NPD, you can post them on the NPD website for free. You can also send them your truth poems!
You can also send me your truth poems, and they might be posted here!
