All the letters should get attention
No matter where they are in the word
~ Yassmin Abdel-Magied from 'There’s so much I could write poetry about'

Poetry Ambassadors representing the form

Every art form needs its champions. We invited eight of the nation's favourite public figures with a deep love of poetry to join our quest to bring poetry to the people during Poetry Month as our first ever Poetry Ambassadors.

Throughout August, our eight Poetry Ambassadors delighted audiences with an original commissioned poem of their own and video readings, published as part of 30in30.
