April 2015

Celebrate national Poem In Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 30, 2015!

The idea is simple: select a poem you love during National Poetry Month then carry it with you to share with co-workers, family, and friends. You can also share your poem selection on Twitter by using the hashtag #pocketpoemit doesn’t even have to be a poem YOU write ~ write down one of  your favorite poems by any author and share it.

PUT A POEM IN YOUR POCKET  ~

In this age of mechanical and digital reproduction,  it’s easy to carry a poem,  share a poem,  or start your own PIYP day event.  Here are some ideas of how you might get involved:

  • Start a  “poems for pockets”  give-a-way in your school or workplace
  • Urge local businesses to offer discounts for those carrying poems
  • Post pocket-sized verses in public places
  • Handwrite some lines on the back of your business cards
  • Start a street team to pass out poems in your community
  • Distribute bookmarks with your favorite immortal lines
  • Add a poem to your email footer
  • Post a poem on your blog or social networking page
  • Text a poem to friends
  • Tweet a poem using the hashtag  #pocketpoem
