National Poetry Day is an annual celebration of the power of poetry.
This year National Poetry Day is on Thursday 4 October, and there’s a very special new book for everyone to enjoy!
Each featured poet has also chosen some of their favourite poems to share, so there’s plenty of inspiration for the big day and beyond!
