Next Week is National Poetry Week in Australia !
Here is the programme (via @AusPoetry www.australianpoetrycentre.org.au)
‘Monday, 5 September: WRITE Australian poetry day – A day devoted to the promotion of all Australians embracing their inner poet and writing……physically, spatially, digitally, privately, wildly!
Tuesday, 6 September: BUY Australian poetry day – A day devoted to the promotion of buying Australian poetry publications in all their forms: books, chapbooks, ebooks, journals, gift books.
Wednesday, 7 September: SHARE Australian poetry day – share the joy of Australian poetry in all its forms: at work, at home, at play, with friends, lovers, strangers, on a stage, in a library, on a train…..
Thursday, 8 September: LIVE Australian poetry day – be liberated to find poetry and the inspiration for poems in every part of life.
Friday, 9 September: CELEBRATE Australian poetry day – the joy of Australian poetry however you embrace it. This day should probably involve cake! ‘
I will be blogging here every day to celebrate the week – sometimes with poems, sometimes with links, mostly with both. Join me ! Maybe we can do a linkup if there are enough of us :-).
PS If you are on Twitter, use the hashtag #NPW2011 . Oh, and follow me @MelindaLSmith if you feel like it 🙂
Happy Poetry Week
