International Cat Day

To mark International Cat Day, The Poetry Society has gathered up a series of cat poems and readings to accompany the global celebration of our feline friends.

Check #InternationalCatDay on The Poetry Society’s Twitter account on Saturday 8 August for a series of cat poetry videos (and puns) from the recent Poetry Society Members’ Poetry Competition on the theme of ‘Cats’, judged by Richard Scott.

Following those, you can watch the thrilling poetry film ‘Cat on the Tracks’ based on the Mark Pajak 2014 National Poetry Competition commended poem of the same name, directed by Katie Garrett.

And if that’s not enough, why not track some more cat poetry in The Poetry Society’s extensive online poetry collection.

Meow for now,

The Poetry Society
