Let’s face it – not everybody’s the best writer, lyricist, or poet. But don’t let that stop you!

Bad Poetry Day encourages you to give it a go anyway by putting pen to paper and writing some terrible verse. The word poetry itself has the word “try, made” and so you need not wait or hesitate as trying better than being idle. So you can take a paper and pen to write your poems, probably the bad poems, and look at the talent you have within you on Bad Poetry Day.

History of Bad Poetry Day

Bad Poetry Day

The actual year, origin, and the person who first celebrated Bad Poetry Day is still unknown. But the person who thought of celebrating such a day had an aim to send the poetry to the old high school teacher by gathering a group of old high school friends. It is also mentioned that he might also be bad at making good poetry and that would have encouraged such kind of people through the Bad Poetry Day celebration. Else, he might have been the kind of person who loves poetry about bad things. The reason for the day extends in number. The best part of rejoicing on this day is by appreciating the ones who write bad poetry. The Bad Poetry Day aims to identify the new poetry writers even if they give bad poetry as the day is notably observed to encourage the bad poets. Poetry, in general, is anyliterary work, written or spoken produced in the metrical form. To better represent bad poetry, one can indulge in creating an art of words without considering its quality.


The best way to celebrate Bad Poetry Day is by writing really bad poetry. Forget perfection and write even a terrible poem. You can even write it yourself and gather your friends, family members to read it out loud. Conduct Bad Poetry readings at any public spot preferably to encourage people who are bad at writing good poems.
