National Poetry Month

3 Apr

Created in 1996 by the Academy of American Poets, National Poetry Month is celebrated every April to increase awareness of poetry. Everyone is invited to participate and the Academy galvanizes teacher, librarians, publishers and many more literary-inspired groups to join in the celebration! Find a poetry event near you via the Academy’s site, browse through workshops and interviews on the Scholastic Teachers site, or get inspired by the Favorite Poem Project. Even the New York Times has some suggestions of how to celebrate the month!
