Today 7th October is National Poetry Day, a British campaign to promote poetry, it was founded in 1994 by William Sieghart, it takes place annually in the UK on the first Thursday in October. Since its inception, it has engaged millions of people across the country with live events, classroom activities and broadcasts.
