Celebrating National Poetry Day

We’re not exactly subtle about our love of the written word here at Scriba PR, so it’ll come as no surprise that National Poetry Day – celebrated on 4th October every year – is circled on our calendar!

Now, we’ll openly admit we’re more adept at writing technical case studies, insightful opinion articles and snappy press releases than we are sonnets, haikus and limericks – but that won’t stop us from channelling our inner Wordsworths and trying our hand at penning some poetry.

You might remember that we celebrated our 5th birthday earlier this year, and to mark the occasion, the team raised a glass to our MD and founder Katie with a little rhyming toast. So, in honour of National Poetry Day 2018, we thought we’d share those very verses… Cheers!


From a little idea, and a 50 pence flip

And a desk set up for one,

With tons of hard graft and lots of support

Scriba PR was born.


Through countless long days and cups of coffee,

Momentum started to build.

The client base grew – and the workload did too! –

Meaning spaces had to be filled.


And so the team grew from one to two,

Then three, four, five and six.

By seven, three moves and one baby Flo

Had also been thrown in the mix.


From writing blogs and press releases

To features, case studies and more,

One thing that unites us more than cake,

Is we’re all word nerds, for sure!


And although we’ve not all been a part

Of the story from chapter one,

We’re all proud members of the team,

And work hard but have plenty of fun.


So here’s to Katie for all you’ve achieved

(We won’t let you forget it either!)

Thanks for being a brilliant boss

And Happy Birthday Scriba!
