Staying human: a poem for every day of October

In partnership with Bloodaxe publisher.

To celebrate poetry throughout the month of October, in 2020 we selected 31 poems – one for each day of October 2020 – from the new Bloodaxe anthology Staying Human. We asked readers across England to record a reading of a poem, which we shared on our Twitter feed through this Soundcloud playlist once a day at 7am all month.

Our Breakfast Poems will be back by popular demand in October 2021!

We share the Breakfast Poems on our social media – you can find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram at @bhamlitfest.
