So, you want to read more poetry | Video

Saturday, 7 April 2018


These are my top three recommendations if you want to start reading more poetry but you don't know how to access the genre or how to discover new styles and writers. This video is partially in celebration of National Poetry Month in the US and to fulfil my ulterior motive of getting more people to read poetry all the time. Please share your thoughts and recommendations below! Thanks for watching!
