History of Poet in a Cupcake Day
Poet in a Cupcake Day is a fun capstone day for Take Your Poet to School Week, a week-long event that began through the efforts of Tweetspeak. Tweetspeak is a poetry party collective that regularly hosts poetry parties where people can come, write poetry and submit them on Twitter or to their blog website.
Tweetspeak originally started as a small group of friends on Twitter who loved writing poetry online and in 2009 officially launched Tweetspeak to keep up with their poetry archives and help others express themselves in the world of poetics.
Since then, in 2015 Tweetspeak was acquired by T. S. Poetry Press, a publishing company that publishes poetry and other forms of literature.
Tweetspeak offers various ideas for literature fans to run with, but their most famous idea is the Take Your Poet to School Week, where each day is themed with a certain activity to help you express your love for your favorite poets.
One of those holidays is the Poet in a Cupcake day, where people can make their favorite cupcake flavors in line with their favorite poets. It’s a day of cupcakes and poetry, so why not have a little fun and celebrate Poet in a Cupcake Day!
