We're celebrating National Poetry Day, a UK-wide celebration of poetry, which takes place on the 5th of October 2023. This year’s theme is Refuge.
You can join in with the National Poetry Library wherever you live by:
Sharing on Twitter your favourite poems on the theme of Refuge. We'll make a prize draw of all participants for a chance to win a bag of NPL merch. Be sure to tag us @natpoetrylib.
Come along to the National Poetry Library on the 5th October between 12-8pm to take part in our Spine Poem challenge and collaborative poem. More poetry goodies to be won!
We're also working with the Forward Foundation to celebrate the launch of the paperback version of our anthology No, Love is Not Dead: An Anthology of Love Poetry From Around the World. Look out for our Tweets @natpoetrylib, alongside @PoetryDayUK.
