Julius Meinl found a great way to combine poetry and coffee – from 2015, every year, on March 21st, they celebrate World Poetry Day in hundreds of locations around the globe. 'Pay with a poem' is their special project that offers you an opportunity to write a poem and get free cup of coffee or tea for your masterpiece.
If you want to discover coffee shops where you can find your inner poet, go to their official web page and use a simple locator. In Dubrovnik you can 'pay with a poem' only at one place, at Caffe Bar Brazil Dvori (Masarykov put 3/B).
This fun idea was a real hit from the beginning – in 2015 more than 100 thousand people participated and we are sure that in 2018 it will be even more popular. Julius Meinel brought some changes this year.
-This year, we took this movement one step further, as we wanted to prove that poetry is the soul of music. Poetry has not always felt accessible, but music is an universal language and has the ability to help people engage with poetry in unexpected ways. This is why we joined forces with the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter JP Cooper, who will create a song to celebrate poets from around the world – it's written on their official website.
So don't forget – on March 21st you can find your inner poet and your free cup of coffee or tea. Maybe you'll discover that you're talented.
