World Poetry Day Is Coming!


This in from Web of Stories...

"World Poetry Day is on March 21st and what better way to celebrate than to present your poetry to the world!

Web of Stories is an online site which offers viewers the opportunity to watch the video life stories from some of the world’s greatest thinkers and achievers. But it also offers members of the public the chance to tell their stories for future generations to enjoy.

There are a number of channels which you can add your video to, including the Poetry channel where you can record a reading of your work to showcase to the world. Why not even include a brief synopsis of your poem and your intentions, thoughts when you wrote it?

Web of Stories is open to all kinds of stories. You can talk about virtually anything you like, including how and why you became involved in poetry and how it has affected your life. There are a number of great poets already on the site such as Donald Hall, Julia Hartwig, WD Snodgrass, Richard Wilbur and to mark World Poetry Day a new speaker will be added to the site – Lithuanian poet Tomas Venclova.

So why not give it a go and record your poem?"
