"The giant centenary poem was unveiled outside the British Library, London on 7 October 2009. Then, Thursday 8 October, National Poetry Day, the poem will be at the Royal Festival Hall, below the Clore Ballroom. The poem chosen for the project was Dylan Thomas's 'In My Craft or Sullen Art', which can be read in full on our homepage. Thank you to the 1000+ participants who knitted and sewed up.
