World Poetry Day is celebrated on March 21 every year to promote the reading, writing, and teaching of poetry across the world. The day is an opportunity to appreciate the beauty and power of poetry, as well as to acknowledge the critical role it plays in inspiring social, political, and environmental changes. It is also a time to celebrate the diverse range of poetic expressions and traditions found around the world.
The St Duthac Book and Arts Festival group have featured celebrated poets in our programme of live events.
