It’s that most wonderful time of year, when folks begin to devour Popsicle after Popsicle (and yes, the occasional Fudgesicle) in hopes of collecting enough Popsicle sticks to create a collection of their favorite poets in time for Take Your Poet to Work Day.
An annual celebration that (literally) brings poetry (and poets) into the workplace, Take Your Poet to Work Day pops up on the calendar every third Wednesday in July. That means for 2017, we’ll celebrate on July 19.
As you savor your next Dove bar, imagine replacing that decadent dark chocolate with a delightful likeness of Robert Frost or Sylvia Plath. Not sure you can eat enough frozen treats in time? Stop on down to your favorite craft store where they sell Popsicle stick look-alikes (even in a variety of wild colors!). Of course, we’ll let you use a pencil or a ruler. When it comes to poets on a stick, we’re generous that way.
Check out our Take Your Poet to Work Day coloring book and our complete gallery of poets we’ve been collecting since 2013. Join us for the day, and Tweet us or Instagram your poets for us to share and enjoy.
Join us on July 19, 2017! & Enjoy These Poet Collections from the Past…
