It’s time to book a poet for National Poetry Day, 28 Sept 2017

It's not too early to book Bernard Young, poet, for National Poetry Day 28 September 2017

UK’s National Poetry Day is usually the first Thursday in October, but this year it has been brought forward by a week to 28th September 2017.

The theme this year is: FREEDOM

If you are lesson planning, there are a lot of free resources for teachers on the National Poetry Day Website, including lesson plans, tool kits and posters.

The change of week and the theme, Freedom, has been chosen because of working closely with the Hull City of Culture and the BBC this year. In 2015, I visited Thorseby Primary School, in Hull, for 3 days and they had Freedom as a theme then too. If you would like to read more about what we did over that period, I’ve written about it here.

If you’d like me to visit your school for poetry performance and workshops around National Poetry Day, please feel free to contact me.
