April is National Poetry Month!

Join us in celebrating National Poetry Month!

Step into the Poet’s Circle anytime during the month of April to read or recite your favorite poem. Receive a free gift (and our undying admiration).

On Saturday, April 9, we’ll host a free Acrostic Poem Workshop (11:00 a.m.). This simplest of poetry forms is fun for the whole family.

Also, check out these great sites for creating and enjoying poetry:

Virtual Magnetic Poetry

Create an Acrostic Poem online. You can save it and print it out.

Write Concrete Poems (especially for kids).

Poetry 180. Former U.S. Poet Laureate (the nation’s poet) Billy Collins created this site with 180 poems to be read to high school students, one each day. But hey, there’s a lot of good stuff here for everyone!

Poets.org (from the Academy of American Poets) is the sponsor of National Poetry Month. On this page you can find links to poems on all sorts of subjects.

The Library of Congress has great information about poets and poetry.

There’s lots of poetry on bartleby.com.

And how can we discuss poetry at all without mentioning The Bard (William Shakespeare). Find out more here.
