National Poetry, Day 2013

National Poetry Day.  3rd October. 2013

This year the theme is based on: water, water everywhere…

Must start looking now for events on the day, or just starting, like the poetry competition.  There is always a mass of things happening, depending on what you are looking for. I will try to get to Londons Southbank or maybe find something local.   Just winding myself up to revisit Milton’s Paradise Lost, somehow reminds me of rolling hills and thunder-storms but as I haven’t read it for nearly fifty years I suspect the memory will be severely dented on the re-read.

 Just seen:

Poet Alice Oswald Wins Warwick Prize
Alice Oswald becomes the first poet to win the £25,000 Warwick
Prize with ‘Memorial’, her acclaimed reworking of Homer’s Iliad

 Note to self:  get a copy asap……

Back to NPD:

 There are hundreds of websites all with links to many others so all you really need to do is type in national poetry day.     Extra cheers for the Scottish Library website et al,  sorry I don’t live in Edinburgh or even Scotland at that.     I have just put in two that are a bit obvious and two others I like
