World Poetry Day

Share your poem!

Are you taking part in World Poetry Day? Whether you are writing, reading or sharing poetry online, feel free to share what you've got here at Poetry Talk in the chat. If you're using the hashtag #WorldPoetryDay on Twitter, you can see lots of cool poems that people are sharing. I've already watched a couple of cool slam poets and am inspired to do something similar with my class soon!

World Poetry Day isn't just a day to share poems, either. It's an actual UNESCO sponsored day that "reaffirms our common humanity," which is quite beautiful if you think about it. I love that in addition to days to fight slavery, hunger and genocide we have ones to celebrate the good stuff about being human, too.

What are you doing to celebrate World Poetry Day? Share your experiences in the chat.
