National Poetry Day 2019

Poets from Andover are being invited to participate in this national event being held on the 3rd October 2019.

Whether you are new to creative writing, or a potential Poet Laureate. You are invited to submit your poetry for broadcast over Andover Radio on that day, to celebrate well known poets of our time and let others hear your genius.

So if you’re the next Pam Ayres or William Wordsworth, this is your chance to get involved and show everyone your skills.

In a world where digitalisation is taking over our daily lives, it is good to return to traditional skills, and poetry is one such skill. So get your thinking caps on and let your writing flow.

The theme for this years Poetry day is ‘Truth‘. Your Poems need to be submitted before 30th September to be in for a chance of being on air and no longer than 40 seconds when read out.

Best of luck to you all and we look forward to hearing your poems on air!

You can also participate in the poets meet up organised by our very own Poet Laureate Dan Hooks AKA the Alien Poet You can find out more about these meetings here. You can submit your poems here.
