April is National Poetry Month, and it's not too late to celebrate!
This is the 12th Anniversary of the event founded by The Academy of American Poets.
National Poetry Month was established by the Academy of American Poets as a month-long, national celebration of poetry. The concept was to increase the attention paid-by individuals and the media—to the art of poetry, to living poets, to our poetic heritage, and to poetry books and magazines. In the end, we hoped to achieve an increase in the visibility, presence, and accessibility of poetry in our culture. National Poetry Month has been successful beyond all anticipation and has grown over the years into the largest literary celebration in the world.
This is the 1st of several posts, this month, that will encourage you to read poetry, and even write poetry of your own as I have, and to encourage you to check out the writing websites in my sidebar.
You may think you don't have it in you to write a poem, but you would be mistaken.
If even I can discover my talent for the stuff then you can, too!
My poems and other creative writing efforts, plus a growing list of writing prompts, can be found in my Poetry, Short Stories, and More Archive. ;-D
