UNESCO declared

World Poetry Day March 21 each year

How much will we hear?

 

World Poetry Day celebrates and promotes the reading, writing, publishing and teaching of poetry worldwide. The day was declared an official observance day by UNESCO in 1999. But as many countries already had established traditional National Poetry Day's around October time (in UK 2 October 2014) this world wide celebration receives very little publicity, certainly it doesn't in the UK.
