2018 National Poetry Month Poster
The 2018 National Poetry Month poster was designed by AIGA Medal and National Design Award-winning designer Paula Scher.

"Paula Scher is one of the most famous designers in the world," says Debbie Millman, the 2016 National Poetry Month poster designer who selected Scher to design this year's poster. "She has created graphic design for some of the most important and influential organizations in the world. This makes her the perfect pick to design the 2018 National Poetry Month poster for the Academy of American Poets."

To help celebrate National Poetry Month each year, we distribute more than 100,000 free posters to schools, libraries, and bookstores coast to coast. 

If you're able to support our efforts, please consider a donation to the Academy of American Poets. Contributions from poetry lovers like you help us send posters to teachers, librarians, booksellers, and event organizers.
