It’s National Poetry Day on 28 September, and the theme is FREEDOM.
We’re pleased to be offering one set of 10 poetry books specifically recommended for sharing in reading groups. To find out more about this fantastic collection of books, download the notes below. To apply for the books, get in touch here.
Don’t worry if your group doesn’t tend to read poetry; we’re also sharing reading group notes from the National Poetry Day team, to help spark discussion in your groups.
Each year National Poetry Day brings together poets, poetry and literary organisations to promote the enjoyment, discovery and sharing of poetry, and hundreds of thousands of people across the UK get involved. And with poets storming the bestseller lists and prominent across Instagram and TV advertising, and the BBC marking National Poetry Day across all its channels, there’s never been a better time to celebrate.
However you celebrate, let everyone know using #NationalPoetryDay!
Closing date: 28 September
