National Poetry Month

National Poetry Month

American poet T. S. Eliot called April "the cruelest month." But the Academy of American Poets calls it National Poetry Month. That means you and your students can unearth those creative spirits. To encourage the pleasures of reading and writing poetry, this site features current poetry events, resources, ideas, and history for individual exploration and classroom use. It also provides biographies and the poetry of selected poets.
