National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month. The good folks over at The Academy of American Poets will provide you with a variety of ways to jump into poetry this month and every month. Write a poem. Read a poem. Go to a poetry reading. Look up the poetry scene in your state - both historical and contemporary.

One poetry collection I’ve enjoyed is “Poetry 180” edited by Billy Collins. When Mr. Collins was the Poet Laureate of the United States he created the program: Poetry 180, A Poem A Day For American High Schools. The Poetry 180 website remains part of the Library of Congress and is regularly updated with new poems. Enjoy!
