I love celebrating National Poetry Day and always enjoy reading how other people have spent theirs. Today is the first day of Birmingham Literature Festival, I booked my tickets when they were released in the summer, which means as I have already paid, it feels free.
Tonight I will be at Kidderminster Carpet Museum to celebrate NPD with Heather Wastie (Worcestershire Poet Laureate), Suz Winspear, Chloe Clarke (Young Poet Laureate) and Maggie Doyle (Poet Laureate Emeritus) as well as the poetry competition finalists;
Winner competition shortlist public vote
Charley Barnes – Greener On The Other Square
Competition finalists in alphabetical order
Brian Comber – Sally-my-handsome
Jenny Shaw – The Colour Of The Wind
Claire Walker – Learning To Make A Rag Rug
It is going to be a great night of poetry.
I also LOVE this posters for NPD 2015 – Save and share
ENJOY and don’t forget to tell us how you are spending yours.
