Take Your Poet to Work

Last year around this time we joked rather innocently, by the virtual Tweetspeak Poetry water cooler, about taking our favorite poets to work with us. On popsicle sticks.

The next thing we knew, we were inviting people around the world to take their favorite poets to work with them. On popsicle sticks.

Remember these?

We’re looking forward to another fun day of mischief, merriment, and mirth with our favorite poets when the second annual Take Your Poet to Work Day comes around on Wednesday, July 16. (Of note: this celebration will take place on the 3rd Wednesday in July each year.)

Together with last year’s poet collection, we have a brand new crew of poets anxious for the chance to go to work with you, whether it’s to help you run the cash register at the supermarket or join you as the CEO meeting with your directors in the board room. Each Wednesday between now and July 16 we’ll be introducing you to another poet, including Langston Hughes, Adrienne Rich, John Keats, W. B. Yeats, Christina Rossetti, and Sylvia Plath.

As a special bonus this year, we’ve taken all our poets and put them together in a fun, free Take Your Poet to Work Coloring Book You can download yours right here, print it out and color to your little poet heart’s content.
