The fact you made it here is a great start. You might have received a poem through your letterbox or maybe you are here because you are ready to step into the shoes of the #postpoet yourself. Either way you made it.
If you received a poem from the #postpoet and want to say thank you then please type away in the box below. Please let us know your town or city as we'd love to get an idea of how far the #postpoet is travelling.

We'd also love for you to pop a pic of your poem on any of your social media pages. Just be sure to thank and acknowledge the #postpoet in your online message.
EG. Just received this amazing poem from the #postpoet (insert pic of poem)
Maybe just maybe you could now pay it forward and keep the kindness going. This could be your time to become the #postpoet
How can I be a #postpoet?
1. All you need to do is to select a template (see the 3 our lovely Jason has made for you below), download it and print.
If you don't have a printer then simply write on something you already have at home.
Just remember to sign off as the #postpoet and include the link www.ngyt.co.uk/postpoet for more info.
2. Write out your poem - It's a challenging time for many at the moment so we encourage you to spread some joy and hope through your words. Keep it positive and appropriate and make someone smile.
3. Lastly - Pop it through a letterbox. This could be your neighbour, someone you know who is struggling or maybe someone who lives on their own. Please make sure you follow Government guidelines regarding social distancing.
