April is National Poetry Month in the United States.
Even though I think people should read poetry every day or at least more often than once per month, April has been the focal point for poetry activities since National Poetry Month was created by the Academy of American Poets in 1996. It’s hard to believe the event has been happening for 20 years.
This year, I’m hoping that I can get some wonderful blogs to participate in the 2016 blog tour for poetry. I would love to get some great new interviews, reviews, poetry readings, innovative poetry activities, and some visual artists interested in sharing some poetic renderings.
If you’re interested in signing up for the tour, feel free to leave a link in the Linky and comment about what you want to host in April.
Stop back here in April for some fun interactive poetry activities.
