In Swansea, Wales, UK, my friend Laura visits a unique site created to honor the 100th anniversary of Dylan Thomas' birth.

In Swansea, Wales, home of the great poet Dylan Thomas, an artist painted the side of a brick building with  enormous words, "More poetry is needed." Yes, it is! This website shares some less giant-sized ways one southern Illinois poet uses to bring more poetry into the world. Kathy welcomes you to add your own ideas to her list:

  • Poetry books

  • Visual poetry – haiga, broadsides, book-spine poems

  • Poetry in gallery exhibits  

  • Poetry contests

  • Organizations that support the craft of poetry

  • Poetry critique groups

  • Connections with those who read, write and listen to poetry
