Today, 21 March, is UNESCO’s World Poetry Day. We hope you’ll be celebrating with some reading, writing or watching of poetry – and our brand new website is a good place to start. Explore the poetry available online in our new Poems database, skip straight to reading the 2014 Foyle winners, or Ted Hughes Award shortlist; or watch a filmpoem or two.
Elsewhere, you can help the Rainforest Alliance finish a frog haiku, or brush up on your poetry listening over at the Poetry Archive, with a guided tour of recordings of the Next Generation Poets 2014 – and you can even pay for a coffee with a poem, in selected locations.
However you choose to celebrate, enjoy and spread the word. Happy World Poetry Day.
