Light: A National Poetry Day 2015 Book

The poems in this free anthology are the work of the National Poetry Day ambassadors – twelve extraordinary poets who spend their lives thinking of fresh ways to make words resonate. We collaborated with Macmillan Children’s Books to nominate the ambassadors and create the anthology.

There are lines here for everyone. Why not make them yours? Copy your favourites out, rewrite them to suit your mood, stick them on the walls, speak them in unison, whisper them in the dark – or hide them anonymously in the pockets of your friends as a surprise.

Just let us know what happens next by posting on Twitter with the hashtags #nationalpoetryday or #thinkofapoem.
