March 31, 2011 — In April, the Academy of American Poets will launch a month-long series of guest poets featured on its streaming Twitter feed. Throughout each day during National Poetry Month, a selected poet will have 24 hours to post his or her daily insights before passing the baton.

This online marathon helps kick-off a series of exciting events taking part during the national 30-day celebration, including the publication of Poem in Your Pocket for Young Poets and a star-studded poetry reading at Lincoln Center.

Users are invited to follow the Academy of American Poets on Twitter to keep up-to-date on the latest poetry posts online at twitter.com/POETSorg.
