World Poetry Day : Send Me a Poem for Cancer Research UK - Pay With a Poem

Today, 21st March is World Poetry Day 

To mark World Poetry Day, over 1000 coffee shops around the world will use poetry as currency today.

Julius Merinl, a coffee roasting company is marking Unesco's World Poetry Day with a promotion in 1100 cafes, bars and restaurants across 23 countries. Most of these are in Europe but theres 5 around London and 1 near Winchester UK.

As there aren't any participating places  near me, I will donate the cost of a cup of coffee for every poem that's sent to me to Cancer Research UK    and I will publish them on this blog. 

Either post as a comment on the blog, or email to

It's also the first day of Spring today, so that may inspire you, but any form and any theme is fine. Get writing and sending now ! 

Look forward to receiving your poetry.
