National Poetry Day 2018 is on Thursday 4th October 2018 and the theme this year is ‘Change’.
Expect an explosion of activity nationwide, thousands of amazing events across the UK – in schools, libraries, bookshops and hospitals, on buses, trains and boats – all celebrating poetry’s power to bring people together. Just look at our events listing to see what’s happening near you.
Andover Radio’s Poet Laureate Daniel Hooks (“The Alien Poet”) is asking budding poets from around Andover to take part. “I would love to hear from people who want to get their poems broadcast.
“Poets will be given the chance to submit poems for broadcast on Andover Radio.
“We will broadcast one poem every hour during National Poetry Day”.
Poems should ideally be 40 seconds long when reading out loud and they must have the theme of ‘Change’. Poets are welcome to come to the Andover Radio studios on Andover High Street to record their works.
