It’s been around for a while, usually celebrated in October. But UNESCO designated World Poetry Day on March 21 in 1999 to “give fresh recognition and impetus to national, regional and international poetry movements.”
PoetSpeak sure sounds like an international poetry movement, doesn’t it? With the goal of giving poets from all over the world a space to voice their work?
So go on, you poetry lover you. Go forth and be poetic like always– just be especially poetic today.
