Already thinking ahead to next year and inspired by todays celebrations online, I thought that it would be fun to invite our friends to join us for a year long poetry project.
I would like you - that's right, you squirming there - to let me know what your favourite poem is and why. It doesn't have to be a long explanation - a few words on what about the poem appeals to you will be great!
I shall then post the poem, your thoughts and twitter/blog links as appropriate. Ideally, I'm hoping for one poem a week to go up during 2013 - 52 in total.
Anything and everything will be gratefully received - from the classics, to original compositions. Variety being the spice of life - submissions in languages other than English will be explored with glee!
To participate, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject - Poetry Challenge 2013.
Feel free to request a specific week, submit pictures, music, videos or anything else that you can to make your entry pop! We shall facilitate wherever we can!
*World Poetry Day is celebrated on the 21st of March each year.
