From the Academy of American Poets:
It’s hard to believe that when the Academy of American Poets launched National Poetry Month in 1996, only a few hundred people participated. Today, it is the largest literary celebration in the world with special events taking place in thousands of schools, libraries, bookstores, and communities nationwide. Here are some ways to participate in National Poetry Month this year:
Sign up for Poem-A-Day, which delivers a new poem to your inbox every morning.
Participate in Poem-in-Your-Pocket Day April 18.
Learn about what’s happening with poetry in your state by taking a looking at our poetry maps.
