Poetry For a Change
A National Poetry Day Anthology
Poems by National Poetry Day Ambassadors
Illustrated by Chie Hosaka
National Poetry Day is a chance for everyone everywhere to read, share and enjoy poetry. This special anthology features poems by the National Poetry Day Ambassadors, a top team of fantastic poets who bring poetry alive all year round.
Includes new poems by Deborah Alma, Joseph Coelho, Sally Crabtree, Jan Dean, Marjorie Lotfi Gill, Chrissie Gittins, Matt Goodfellow, Sophie Herxheimer, Michaela Morgan, Brian Moses, Abigail Parry, Rachel Piercey, Rachel Rooney, Joshua Siegal and Kate Wakeling (winner of the CLiPPA, 2017). And each poet has chosen a favourite poem to share, so you’ll also find classics by Chistina Rossetti, WB Yeats, Shakespeare and Keats among others.
Take a look, and be part of the celebration! National Poetry Day was founded in 1994 by the Forward Arts Foundation, whose mission is to celebrate excellence in poetry and increase its audience.
