National Poetry Day Ambassadors

Our National Poetry Day ambassadors are a crack corps of particularly inspiring poets who take poetry to new and young audiences – in schools, in bookshops, in libraries, in public squares – all year round.  Last year, they wrote new poems on the 2015 theme of Light for Macmillan Children’s Books, launched as a free e-Book last October.  Light, a National Poetry Day anthology promptly  went to the top of the downloads list: read it and you will see why.
