Thursday is National Poetry Day

Poetry, for me, is creativity at its best, and I shall be making a big effort to get to at least one ‘poetry’ event on Thursday. Everyday this week, Jeremy Vine (BBC Radio 2, 12-2pm) is doing a ‘poetry’ slot, choosing a different theme each day and featuring guest poets. I love his Mr Gee […]
