World Poetry Day History
World Poetry Day seeks to promote linguistic diversity and expression through poetry. This day encourages writing poetry and aims to support teachers and publishers. Poetry is an artistic expression that emphasizes feelings and ideas by using different styles and rhythms. It can be spoken or written. The United Nations believes that poetry is an affirmation of our common humanity and proves that all humans everywhere share the same questions and feelings.
World Poetry Day was established in 1999 by UNESCO as part of an effort to support creative expression and endangered languages. It is observed annually on March 21st.
