National Poetry Month was inaugurated by the Academy of American Poets in 1996. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world with schools, publishers, libraries, booksellers, and poets celebrating poetry’s vital place in our culture.
Each Monday, we’ll reveal our poet and poem of the week starting on April 4! National Poetry Month content will be available on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so follow along on your favorite platform.
