National Poetry Day commission for Katrina Naomi

25 June 2018 - 10:42am

In preparation for National Poetry Day, BBC Local Radio has commissioned new poems for #PoetryForAChange – twelve UK poets, including our very own Katrina Naomi (author of The Way the Crocodile Taught Me) will be writing under the theme of ‘change’: real-life changes big or small; external events that prove to be turning points for a community; or a glimpse of new possibilities that transform thoughts and feelings. 

The poems will be broadcast on National Poetry Day, 4th October. Listen in to your local radio station on the day – Katrina Naomi will be representing BBC South West.
