National Poetry Month Poster 2016
Each year, the Academy of American Poets partners with award-winning designer Chip Kidd to commission a poster in celebration of National Poetry Month. We distribute more than 120,000 posters, which are displayed in classrooms, libraries, and bookstores, from coast-to-coast. The 2016 poster was designed by Debbie Millman and features lines of poetry by some of our greatest poets. To read a selection of the poetry featured on the poster, read our anthology of poster poems.
To see posters from years past, visit our poster gallery or, to purchase posters from previous years, visit the Poets Shop
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 tens of thousands of teachers, librarians, booksellers, and event organizers.
