National Poetry Day preparations are hotting up; so is the bumper selection of new titles for September (you should see the list for October). And poem posters for the referendum, for SQA resources and for National Poetry Day - surely something for everybody!
The new titles selection for this month is particularly strong in anthologies of new poetry and emerging writers, as well as a large list of excellent collections and collecteds by individual poets.
Four poem posters for before and after the referendum - whichever way you're voting. Plus a convenient gathering of all our posters from SQA set poetry texts, and of course all 8 NPD poem posters plus a general display poster.
The theme for this year's National Poetry Day, on Thursday 2 October, is REMEMBER. Memory, memorising, remembrance... an obvious WWI-friendly theme if you need it, but it'll work in other topics from reminiscence groups to revision techniques. We've just put up the pdf posters of each of the postcard poems, so you can read the poems, see the card designs and download the posters from our National Poetry Day resources page.
