Happy National Poetry Month!

Thank you to the Academy of American Poets for inaugurating National Poetry Month in 1996! Happy 15th birthday, National Poetry Month!

To celebrate, this blog will be dedicated to poetry throughout the month. You can look forward to poetry resources, writing prompts and some guest bloggers and interviews, too.

Two upcoming blog highlights:
Friday, April 8th: interview with Articles Press founder, poet Ethan Edwards

Friday, April 15th: guest blogger and poet Margaret Rozga will share poems from her new book and insight into her writing process

Throughout the month, there will be many opportunities to celebrate poetry in your city or town and virtually.  On April 4th, the Academy of American Poets sponsors Poem in Your Pocket Day. Throughout the month, you can receive a Poem a Day emailed to you. To find out more about what is happening in your state, check out the National Poetry Map.

I invite you to share additional resources and events in the Comments section below. 

Three cheers for poetry!
