Today is Pay for Your Coffee With a Poem Day

If you are a writer, you’ve probably measured out a good portion of your life in cafe coffee spoons. Well, today you writers can get your coffee for the price of a poem. To mark International Poetry Day, the coffee maker Julius Meinl has gotten over 1,000 coffee shops in 23 countries to agree to exchange coffee for poetry. You can see if your city has a poetry-friendly shop here (the vast majority are in continental Europe) or follow on twitter with #PayWithAPoem. Watch the video above to find out more.
