International Literacy Day

International Literacy Day was first announced by UNESCO on November 17, 1965. Each year Literacy Day has a theme aiming to highlight the importance of literacy to communities, individuals and societies in third world countries. This year International Literacy Day will be held on the 8th September and the theme is based on literacy and peace.

We are inviting poets from across the globe to send a poem or short story (maximum words 250) keeping the theme in mind, to mark the occasion. Ten poets will have the chance to have their work featured on our Literacy Day dedication page and will also be awarded with a copy of Creating Fictional Characters The Essential Guide, courtesy of Need 2 Know Books.

For more information about International Literacy Day please click here.

Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
