Poetry at Work Day, January 14, 2014.

Ossining, NY, January 11, 2014 --( Recently, Harvard Business Review discussed the value of poetry for professionals. Among other benefits, it can help employees wrestle with complexity, develop empathy, and boost creativity. Tweetspeak Poetry is helping bring poetry to work. One of the simplest ways to begin is with Poetry at Work Day.

Poetry at Work Day is coming again this January 14, 2014. The first annual celebration went across the world and received press from Huffington Post, Publishers Weekly, andBook Patrol. This year, it is currently featured at

Tweetspeak Poetry is looking for businesses to take the lead in “bringing poetry to work,” which means it will also spend some time highlighting them. Businesses can create larger visuals/experiences that could be pointed to, so other businesses can follow suit in the future. It can be as big as a business feels inclined to make it—the way a law firm and a construction company in Charlotte has helped sponsor putting poetry on city buildings.

Tweetspeak Poetry promotes simple ideas as well: employees reading poetry over a lunch break, people writing simple poetry to share with the whole office on a poetry wall or other communal space or maybe on Twitter, or just finding pre-existing poetry at work (in the way words are strung together in unexpected places).

If a business sponsors a Poetry at Work Day experience for employees and clients, (or if an employee celebrates on his own) Tweetspeak Poetry will consider highlighting the details. Tweet to @tspoetry to share celebration details.
