April is National Poetry Month! Here are some ways to join the celebration (and take a look at this list of 30 ways to celebrate National Poetry Month in the classroom for more):
If you haven't already, sign up to receive a free copy of this year’s National Poetry Month poster, designed by Paula Scher.
Invite your students to participate in the Dear Poet Project by writing letters in response to videos of our award-winning Chancellors reading their work. We will consider all letters for publication online in May 2018, and our Chancellors will reply to select letters of their choosing.
Save the date for this year's Poem in Your Pocket Day. On April 26, people across North America will carry poems to share with others throughout the day. Download a packet of poems for the occasion and learn how to bring Poem in Your Pocket Day to schools, bookstores, libraries, public spaces, and on Twitter (with the hashtag #pocketpoem).
Share your activities with us on social media with the hashtag #NationalPoetryMonth.
For National Library Week, read this selection of poems about libraries, librarians, and the joys of reading.
