It’s that time of year again! Take Your Poet to Work Day is coming up on Wednesday, July 16th and your favorite poets are hopping off your bookshelf and invading your office!
Last year, I was working from home on Take your Poet to Work Day, so I spent the day with Emily Dickinson. It seemed only appropriate since Emily spent most of her time at home and so did I! We made some jewelry and when it was time for a break, we had tea and spent some time on Twitter and Facebook, checking out everyone’s great #Poettowork tweets and photos!
It was so much fun reading about people’s Take Your Poet to Work antics that I decided to do my part in promoting Take Your Poet to Work Day by:
