The Academy of American Poets Announces 30 Guest Poets on Tumblr


On April 1, the Academy of American Poets will kick off its 2nd annual celebration of "30 Days, 30 Poets" for National Poetry Month. This April, 30 dynamic poets will take over curation of the Academy's Tumblr. Each featured poet will have 24 hours to post an array of ephemera—in the form of text, images, audio, and video—before passing the baton. The Tumblr takeover follows 2011's lauded "30 Days, 30 Poets" on the Academy's Twitter feed.

This online poet marathon initiates a series of events taking place during National Poetry Month, including the publication of the Academy's newly redesigned journal, American Poet, the star-studded 10th Anniversary of Poetry & The Creative Mind (April 5) at Lincoln Center, and Poem in Your Pocket Day (April 26).

About National Poetry Month and the Academy of American Poets

Created by the Academy of American Poets in 1996 and celebrated every subsequent April, National Poetry Month, the largest literary celebration in the world, unites publishers, booksellers, literary organizations, libraries, schools, and poets in a celebration of poetry and its vital place in American culture. National Poetry Month is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts, and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. The Academy of American Poets is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 1934 to foster an appreciation for contemporary poetry and to support American poets at all stages of their careers.
