It's National Poetry Day today, and that seemed like a good time to celebrate some Jewish poets.
After all there are so many of them, from Yehuda Amichai to George Oppen, Muriel Rukeyser to Osip Mandelshtam. And we're sure you have many of your own.
Here Rachel Creeger, actress and comedian, explains why Joshua Seigal is her favourite Jewish contemporary poet.
I'd like to introduce people to my favourite contemporary Jewish poet, Joshua Seigal. He writes from the heart using playful and creative language that appeals to all ages. Although he's possibly best known as a children's poet he also writes beautiful, clever and comedic poetry for adults. You can find him performing at literary festivals, comedy clubs and as writer-in-residence at schools all over the country.
