National Poetry Month – April
Every month there seems to be a National Celebration for one cause or another.
With this in mind – APRIL is National Poetry Month – I’ve taken this blurb right from their site so all credit goes to the Academy of American Poets.
What are the goals of National Poetry Month?
The goals of National Poetry Month are to:
- highlight the extraordinary legacy and ongoing achievement of American poets
- encourage the reading of poems
- assist teachers in bringing poetry into their classrooms
- increase the attention paid to poetry by national and local media
- encourage increased publication and distribution of poetry books, and
- encourage support for poets and poetry.
I’ll put up more details on this page and PLEASE Post your info or submissions.
