It’s coming. July 15th, 2015. Take Your Poet to Work Day.
Why should kids have all the fun? You’ve taken your daughter or son to work (or maybe you’ve taken someone else’s child to work). Your poet wants to go now too.
Maybe you can show Neruda (or Teasdale) how you do poetry at work. Or maybe you’ll do something altogether different. Share your ideas in the comment box. (We’re serious, even though we’re being serious about fun.)
Share your stories with us. Snap a picture and post to your favorite social media. Tag or mention us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #poettowork and we might feature you.
And remember, if you aren’t at work on Take Your Poet to Work Day, you can always take your poet to the beach.
Find all the resources you need to make a great day of it, including a coloring book featuring all of our printable, stickable poets in this Take Your Poet to Work Day resource roundup.
Browse our collection of ready-to-go poets you can take to work:
