As Autumn begins National Poetry Day also arrives, on 28th September 2017, with its annual celebration inspiring people throughout the UK to enjoy, discover and share poems.
Could there possibly be a bigger or more pertinent theme for National Poetry Day than this year’s choice “Freedom”?
There will be events around the UK with schools, libraries and writing groups and I’m delighted to be heading over to Pleckgate High School in Blackburn where I will work on some classic poems with young people and share the work of pupils and staff. The day is intended to inspire and there is no doubt that working with young people is always inspirational.
You can read about last year’s event by clicking here and I will of course report on the event afterwards.
