Now updated with 2016 poets!
The year’s biggest gathering of poets in workplaces around the world is coming up soon.
The next Take Your Poet to Work Day is Wednesday, July 20th 2016(always the 3rd Wednesday in July). And frankly, we can’t wait. We’ve been dreaming about all the things our favorite poets will be doing at work: taking our phone calls, leading meetings, mowing the grass, driving trucks, waiting tables, doing lab experiments, and all kinds of other things. We can’t even wait to see them in the break room or chatting by the water cooler.
We have great ways to help you celebrate, including our printable freebie, the Take Your Poet to Work Coloring Book. Our free gift to you, you can download and print out the book, then color and cut out poets to your poetic little heart’s content. Take copies to work. Give them to your coworkers. Pass out poets to your customers. Print coloring pages and leave the on the tables in the cafeteria. Share this page on Facebook and Twitter and invite everyone you know to take their favorite poet to work.
