National Poetry Month. Sponsored by the Academy of American Poets, Poetry Month has been held every year since 1996.
Check out the Academy's Poets.org site for information about poets and poetry. You can sign up for email delivery of a poem-a-day or find information about regional poets with the National Poetry Map.
We also have additional poetry resources you may want to listen to or view: our subscription to Literature Online Reference Center includes Poetry Archive Audio and Poets on Screen. The first is made up of audio files of contemporary poets reading their own work; the second is a video collection of poets reading their own and others' works. Over 1800 files (audio and video) are available altogether. Both can be found under Literature Online's multimedia link.
