|National Poetry Day is growing! This week we announced a new partnership with English Heritage, which will be offering a fabulous programme of poetry participation opportunities linked to the hidden stories of its sites, from October 1 and running through October in parallel with Black History Month. Stand by for more news shortly – the programme is led by poet Jacob Sam-La Rose who has brilliant writing and performing tips to share.|
Meanwhile, tell us what you are planning! The National Poetry Day map gives you an idea of the range of events – big, small and micro – taking place. Add yours for the chance to win a set of three poetry books. And use our online resources: we have cleared copyright on loads of poems on the theme of Vision and you might like to print out ones you like and stick them in your window. And if you want to share the way you #ShareAPoem: take a picture for Twitter or Insta, tag #NationalPoetryDay.
