Poem reading enthusiasts all across the globe are able to share their thoughts and feelings on March 21, for World Poetry Day.

Capturing and recognizing the literary tradition, on the third Wednesday of March, the moral goal that is World Poetry Day is to allow poetic expression to be heard–through reading, writing, and educating in cafes, colleges, libraries, and various online sites.

Another goal set upon by U.N.E.S.C.O. (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization), the founders of this commemoratory day is to, “support linguistic diversity through poetic expression and to offer endangered languages the opportunity to be heard within their communities.”

In 1999, the U.N.E.S.C.O. officially settled to declare March 21 as World Poetry Day.
