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 brendagunning15@hotmail.com


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.
