Time to Book a Poet for World Book Day 5th March 2020

Image with words World Book Day Thursday 5 March Save the date

Every year World Book Day is the first Thursday in March – this year the date is Thursday 5th March. There are lots of resources for primary schools on the UK World Book Day website here: https://www.worldbookday.com/resources/primary/

I’ve already had enquiries about that week, so if you are thinking you might like a poet to come into your school to liven things up, please do contact me early to avoid disappointment.

In 2019 I had a busy week around World Book Day and spent the day itself at Greenfield Primary in Hyde near Manchester. Here is a write up about that day:

National Poetry Day 2016 is Thursday 6 October

NPD2016-2

National Poetry Day is one of the two busiest times of the year for me, the other being World Book Day. I’m just giving you advanced notice of the date since it doesn’t allow for much planning time after you return from summer holidays.

If you are interested in having a poet visit your school, please have a look at the sort of things I do in the schools visits section. If that interests you, please contact me to check availability and price.
