Gedichtendag

Poetry Day, held every year on the last Thursday of January, forms the biggest poetry extravaganza in the Netherlands and Flanders. On this day poetry lovers in both countries organise a diverse selection of poetry activities, and the media also takes the opportunity to be a bit more poetic. 

Since 2013, Poetry Day officially marks the start of Poetry Week. For such a huge variety of performances, publications, poetry prizes, programmes and activities, one day just wasn’t enough any more!
