One of the best parts about the start of a new year is the annual celebration of Poetry at Work Day. And with that celebration comes the release of the new Poetry at Work Day poster.
We know you can always bring poetry to to work with you. You can tuck a poetry collection into your lunch bag or into your briefcase. You can pin up a poem on your cubicle wall. You can even commit a favorite poem to memory. But we also believe that poetry is already in the workplace — in the staff meeting, in the cubicle, in the organizational chart, and even in restructuring and retirement. So every new year, on the second Tuesday in January, we celebrate the poetry we can find in the places that we work.
To join in the celebration, download our free 2017 Poetry at Work Day poster and share it around your workplace. For more great ideas to celebrate at your place of work, be sure to check out our Poetry at Work Day resource page.
