National Poetry Month in April

The month celebrates poets’ integral role in our culture and that poetry matters. It has become the largest literary celebration in the world, with tens of millions of readers, students, K–12 teachers, librarians, booksellers, literary events curators, publishers, families and — of course — poets marking poetry’s important place in our lives.
