We’re Celebrating Poem in Your Pocket Day (April 21)!

Thursday, April 21 is the 14th annual Poem in Your Pocket Day. People celebrate by choosing a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others in person and on Twitter using the hashtag #pocketpoem. This year, we’re getting in on the action with a contest. 3 lucky tweeters will win a package of 6 poetry books!

For a chance to win:

  1. Choose one of our free pocket poems (below).
