Our tour in 2013 stopped at Sponsor a Poet & the Poetry store, lots of poetry from members around the world,http://www.poets.org/page.php/prmID/75

We also checked out some very awesome Poetry logo from Poetry.org & The NaAmerican Academy of Poets! http://www.google.com/search?q=national+poetry+month&client=ms-android-metropcs-us&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=gbeiUc3IG4GY9QTm5YCQBQ&ved=0CDkQsAQ&biw=320&bih=460



How does the Academy celebrate National Poetry Month?
  • Posters: Each year the Academy creates and distributes nearly 200,000 official NPM posters, which are mailed for free to teachers, librarians, and booksellers nationwide.
  • Events: The Academy presents several special events and readings in April, including our star-studded annual Poetry & The Creative Mind.
  • Publicity: To ensure that poetry gains national attention in the media each April, the Academy sends press releases to editors and journalists across the country. As a result, thousands of articles about poetry appear in newspapers, magazines, and online media outlets. The Academy also acts as the official clearing house for news and information about National Poetry Month.
  • Inspiration & Guidance: The Academy offers a plethora of practical resources for celebrating NPM, including tips for teaching poetry during April, creating a poetry book display in your bookstore or library, presenting a poetry reading or contest, and much more.
