30 Ways to Celebrate National Poetry Month

Celebrate National Poetry Month by visiting this site, which offers 30 poetry activities for the event including interactive links to freebies, poetry readings, videos, and more. Start now by ordering a free National Poetry Month poster, or sign up for Poem-a-day and read a poem every day. Learn how important poetry is in the U.S. today, or attend a poetry reading at your local library. Better still, try reading a poem at open mic, or start a poetry reading group. You can even make poets’ favorite foods and drinks using their hand-written recipes. You can hear poets read their works or watch videos of them speaking. One link takes you to a list of full length films that are about poets’ lives or that feature poetry such as Dead Poet Society and Big Bad Love.
