Happy National Poetry Day
I'm really excited to say that plans are underway for a return of Poetry Swindon in the New Year. If you'd like to be kept up to date please consider joining our mailing list, following us on social media, and keeping an eye out for announcements through the Swindon Artswords newsletter - you can find a link to their October update here, and if you're not already signed up to their mailing list you can do so here.
In the meantime, happy National Poetry Day. This year's theme is Refuge, which comes in many forms and can mean different things to different people. If you're looking to explore poetry on the them of Refuge, National Poetry Day have curated a selection of poems by some great poets, which you can read here.
If you find yourself inspired, why not write your own poem about what Refuge means to you.
And if you are free between 11:30 and 13:30 today, the wonderful Swindon Hub are running a special event with Swindon's Community Poet, Tony Hillier.
