Poem In Your Pocket Day

April is National Poetry Month and today is Poem In Your Pocket Day–a great day to share your favorite poem. Read on for more info!

Celebrate national Poem In Your Pocket Day on Thursday, April 14, 2011!

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.

Put Poems In Pockets:

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:

– Post pocket-sized verses in public places
– 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
– Project a poem on a wall, inside or out
– Text a poem to friends

Spread the word. This thing could be bigger than Christmas!

(And if you’re looking for poetry resources, we’ve got you covered.)

  1. Interesting, I like poetry and I have posted some on a blog before.

  2. I also think this is intresting. I don’t know much about poetry, but i enjoy listening. I don’t like to write though.

  3. If you love that poem in your pocket so much that you want to share it, come to the Teen Poetry Slam on Monday, April 25. It will be at the Shadow Lounge in East Liberty from 5-8. It’s free and open mic so just come and sign up! You can read your own poetry or a poem by someone else. Oh ya, and everyone who reads gets a prize! Email me if you have any questions teensmain@carnegielibrary.org
