National Poetry Day 2017 is on 28 September. It’s about everybody sharing poetry, reading poetry, writing poetry, and enjoying poetry.

This activity by Sophie McKeand, Young People’s Laureate for Wales, for Literature Wales, the National Company for the development of literature in Wales, uses the Mask of Anarchy by Shelley and a new poem specially written by Sophie to consider freedom, and poetry as a tool for this.
