Random Acts of Poetry Day is celebrated on the first Wednesday in October. In 2017, that’s October 4.
How to Celebrate:
Random Acts of Poetry Day is about painting poetry in the public square, either literally or figuratively. Chalk your poem onto the sidewalk (or a blackboard), leave one on a subway seat, pin one onto your local grocery store board. Need inspiration for a random act? Download our little book of 10 ideas (below), pick one at random, and take poetry action.
Want to share your random acts of poetry with us? Use the hashtag #raopoetryday on Twitter and Instagram.
