Happy Poem in Your Pocket Day

Posted by Black Classic Press on

Today is the day. As part of National Poetry Month, thousands of people will celebrate Poem in Your Pocket Day by selecting a poem, carrying it with them, and sharing it with others throughout the day at schools, bookstores, libraries, parks, workplaces, and on Twitter using the hashtag #pocketpoem.

In honor of the day, which began in New York City in 2002 and was made national by the Academy of American Poets in 2008, we have a special offer for our very best customers. We're joining in the celebration by offering free shipping on any order of our poetry and literature titles to the first 50 people who send a short, original poem (no more than 10 lines) to email@blackclassicbooks.com.

To be considered, the subject line of your email must read "Poem in My Pocket."

Your free shipping code will be sent after your poem is received and reviewed.

We must receive your poem by midnight on April 27th. Please note that, unless you indicate otherwise, we may post your poem on our blog or Facebook page.

Check out Black Classic Press poets E. Ethelbert Miller and Laini Mataka for inspiration. And then pull that poem out of your pocket and send it our way!
