Schools, community groups, shops and businesses in Crewkerne are invited to take part in a week of promoting the enjoyment and discovery of poetry by displaying or posting favourite poems or lines of poetry for others to enjoy. The community project is being run by Creative Crewkerne in conjunction with Crewkerne Library to celebrate poetry and National Poetry Day which is on Thursday October 4th.
This year’s theme for the annual event, a national initiative by the Forward Arts Foundation and supported with public funding by the Arts Council England is Change. The chosen theme is only meant as a guideline to ‘kick start inspiration rather than be prescriptive’. Poetry lovers who would like to share their favourite poems are asked to have them ready for display and deliver them to Crewkerne Library by Tuesday September 25th. Anyone who wishes to contact Creative Crewkerne about this event, please leave a note at the library or email firstname.lastname@example.org
