What is National Poetry Day?
According to their site:
“National Poetry Day, the annual mass celebration of poetry and all things poetical, marks its 21st birthday today on Thursday 8 October 2015. . . . All are invited to join in, breaking with the tyranny of prose by thinking of a poem and sharing it imaginative ways, with the hashtags #nationalpoetryday and #thinkofapoem.”
