It’s morning. The start of your work day, if you work a standard 9-5 sort of job. Or maybe you’re just getting home from the night shift, making yourself dinner while half the country stands bleary-eyed at the counter, waiting for toast to pop up and coffee to brew. Or maybe you just worked your four days on and are starting your three days off. Whatever your hours, whatever your job description or how many jobs you work, this is no ordinary work week.
This is the week you get to Take Your Poet to Work.
On the third Wednesday of July (that’s July 19 for 2017), we invite you to pick a poet to pack in your lunchbox for Take Your Poet to Work Day. You can browse our collection of ready-for-work poets. Then just cut out, color and secure your chosen poet to a stick and you’re ready to go. Impress your boss. Delight your coworkers. Amuse your fellow subway passengers.
And don’t forget to 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. (If you Instagram, also tweeting to us will help ensure you are seen.)
Browse all of our ready-for-work poets:

This brilliant initiative has unintentionally raised awareness of an important problem in modern workplaces: lack of sticks.
Will Willingham says
Tragic, such a lack. 🙂
We’ve seen pencils and drinking straws stand in for sticks.
And in once case, what I thought looked a lot like a Twizzler.
