From our understanding World Poetry Day is going to be 20 yrs old this year!

Designated by UNESCO in 1999, the 21st of March is a day to share, create and remember those who have been before or are imprisoned for their art.

There are often local events going on so check out your area or celebrate yourself with a writing spree or some reading.

Here at WoPo we will be twitting away for the day with writing prompts as well as heading out for a writing session in our local environs culminating in a book launch – yes it’s all poetry!

So we are all very excited!
