When the Academy of American Poets launched National Poetry Month in 1996, we made sure Poets.org was a place where individuals from across the country could find information about how to celebrate poetry in their community—from New Hampshire to California—as well as learn more about local poets, events, workshops, bookstores, and publications. On our Poetry Near You pages, this is still true!
Because Poets.org does not have an endowment to support the site, we rely on the multitudes of members, donors, and partners who continue to make Poets.org possible. Poets.org is truly people-powered! Thank you for visiting Poets.org and helping us grow the audience for poetry.
