Happy National Poetry Month!
Poetry happens all year, on good and bad and in-between days, of course. But April is a great time to celebrate the genre.
How will you join in?
You might start by looking at the National Poetry Month page from the Academy of American Poets (complete with my favorite: sign up for a poem a day to be emailed to your in-box throughout the month), attend a reading (the Beltway Poetry Review publishes a thorough calendar for the D.C. area), visit your local library or favorite independent bookstore and browse for books, watch and listen to poets read their work at the Dodge Poetry Festival on their Youtube station or try writing a poem a day.
For more, scroll through the resources I've gathered on the right side of this website.
