We’re sure, being the literary wunderkinds that you are, you already knew that April is National Poetry Month, the month when “publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools and poets around the country band together to celebrate poetry and its vital place in American culture.” That’s from the official website of National Poetry Month, www.poets.org, presented by the Academy of American Poets.
While poetry’s “vital place” may sometimes be questionable in these times but you wordsmiths and lovers of lyrical artistry know the value poetry has for your own work…don’t you? (Hint: if not, it’s time you found out.)
- Re-discover your favourite national, international, living, and historically significant poets
- Find new poems to enjoy
- Marvel at your state’s poetic history & current happenings.
(Californians, click here!)
- And, if that’s not enough, here’s your free Poem Flow iPhone app.
Now go write some haiku or something.
