Since 1996, the Academy of American Poets has sponsored National Poetry Month each April.
It's a month when publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its place in American culture.
Thousands of businesses and non-profit organizations participate through readings, festivals, book displays, workshops, and other events.
Some events online include:
|Poem In Your Pocket Day: Join thousands of individuals across the U.S. by carrying a poem in your pocket on Thursday, April 14.|
|Poetry & the Creative Mind: Each April, The Academy of American Poets presents a star-studded celebration of American poetry.|
