What Is National Poetry Month?

National Poetry Month is an annual observance in the United States that occurs every April. Designed to promote poetry and its appreciation and to encourage the reading, writing, and teaching of poetry, the event was started by the Academy of American Poets in 1996 and has since grown to become the largest literary celebration in the world! During National Poetry Month schools (as well as bookstores, libraries, and more) country hold events and activities to celebrate poetry and its role in culture and society.
