National Poetry Day: In Poetry, Truth

March 1, 2019

National Poetry Day marks its 25th anniversary this year with a mass participation campaign highlighting poetry’s power to forge community – whether intimate or on the grand scale – by celebrating words that touch on truth.

The campaign – which culminates on Thursday October 3rd with thousands of poetry events across the UK – is themed around ‘truth’. It will showcase poetry’s value in capturing those nuanced human truths that polls, statistics and big data ignore.
