Carry a Poem – Press Launch Monday, 15 February 2010

Carry a Poem is in full swing, and most of the books have flown out of libraries, cafes and pubs across town.  The poetry pocketcards have been so popular that we are releasing another batch across town at the end of this week.

You can still get books (while stocks last, at least) at most of our Carry a Poem events, and while you’re there, why not share your story of the poem you carry?  If you aren’t able to make any of the events, then we’ve put together a wee video from the Carry a Poem launch to give you a taste:

Thanks to Amy MacDonald, Lilias Fraser, Catherine Lockerbie and Robin Harper MSP for sharing the poems they carry on camera.

I hope you do this once a year. It is so delightful to be able to follow it, even from afar. Congratulations to all involved for doing such a splendid job of generating enthusiasm for poetry and making it so beautifully visible (and audible). I am thrilled each day to go to my inbox and read what people have to say about what poems they carry and how. Thank you, thank you! I know what a huge task this is.
