Celebrate National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month – a time set aside every year to celebrate the written word and raise awareness and appreciation of poetry across the United States. Established in 1996, National Poetry Month was inspired by the success of Black History Month and Women’s History Month, celebrated each year in February and March, respectively. In 1995 the Academy of American Poets assembled a group of publishers, booksellers, librarians, literary organizations, poets and teachers to discuss the necessity and usefulness of establishing a yearly, month-long celebration of poetry.
