Send a poetry card

September 23, 2020

In today’s world, we’ve never been more in need of meaningful connection. Lines of poetry on a postcard, chosen and sent by a friend, are a reminder of the connections that matter – and it is a great way to be part of National Poetry Day and support our work.

“The TouchNote platform is a way to connect with others in the most personal of ways. Our cards let you bring photos, memories, and thoughts to life, sharing what matters most with those closest to you. From a personal memory to a thoughtful poem, send something real and say it with TouchNote”

From now until late October, the charity Forward Arts Foundation is working in partnership with TouchNote to make it easy for everyone to #shareapoem on the front of a special customised postcard, sent to anyone in the world.

To take advantage of this exclusive 30-Day Trial offer of 4 free cards, click HERE to start your poetry postcard.

The app works best on a mobile phone and is superflexible: you can choose a poem you love as the image on the card – maybe one you’ve discovered, or one you’ve composed. Or you can use cards designed by TouchNote, like these below, featuring the words of Maura Dooley, Federico García Lorca and Yosano Akiko. For every postcard ordered through this offer, TouchNote will donate 30p to Forward Arts Foundation.
