International Poetry Calendar

Somewhere in the world, every day, someone is writing poetry, reading poetry, encouraging and mentoring poetry, awarding recognition to poetry, presenting and celebrating poetry in new and unusual ways. Take a look at where and when and how poetry is happening. Send us poetry-related dates or events you’d like to see on our ever-blossoming Griffin International Poetry Calendar.
