Next week marks the biggest week in poetry since popsicle stick poets lined up and marched on workplaces around the globe in July.
Tweetspeak is teaming up with the Forward Arts Foundation to celebrate poetry on two sides of the pond. Britain’s National Poetry Day takes place on October 6 this year. And, we’re celebrating our second annual Random Acts of Poetry Day on October 5.
You can start sharing the the joy of poetry on two sides of the pond right now with our fun shareable graphics and audio of Christina Rossetti’s “Up-Hill.” Download to your heart’s content and spread the word on your favorite social media channels.
Up-Hill by Christina Rossetti, read by Ann Kroeker
Every bathtub should have a rubber duck with a poetry raft
You can always use a poetry carrier pigeon to get the message across
Chill with the penguins and their poetry collections
We don’t have an explanation for the chicken poets
