Help us celebrate National Poetry Day
In conjunction with National Poetry Day, we are celebrating some great poetry collections by Landing Press and Escalator Press!
Come into the National Library and drop a word relating to the sea (plus your name and contact details) into our giant origami boat on display.
Win some prizes
You will get an instant prize of an individually-wrapped biscuit and a poem from one of two new collections of poetry, Keel & Drift by Adrienne Jansen and Everything is here by Rob Hack.
Once done, you will go in the draw to win dinner for two on a boat in Mana, or copies of these amazing collections.
If you can’t get to the National Library that day, don’t fret! Just email your word to firstname.lastname@example.org on the day.
