Posted on: Wednesday, April 4, 2012 - 8:08pm




National Poetry Month

A month-long, national celebration
of poetry established by the Academy
of American Poets. The concept is to widen the attention of individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our complex poetic heritage, and to poetry books and journals of wide aesthetic range and concern. We hope to increase the visibility and availability of poetry in popular culture while acknowledging and celebrating poetry’s ability to sustain itself in the many places where it is practiced and appreciated.
