Gearing Up for National Poetry Month

Thursday, April 1, marks the beginning of National Poetry Month. Learn what's going on in your state, poetry-wise, by clicking on the National Poetry Map.

If you teach, visit Scholastic's April is National Poetry Month page by clicking here.

You can get a poem delivered into you inbox each day with this service from Poets.org. Other email and RSS feed poetry options are found at Poemhunter.com, the Borzoi Reader Poem-a-Day, the Writer's Almanac with Garrison Keillor, and Writers in the Schools. There are also lists that will send a particular poetic form such as a Shakespearean sonnet or a haiku. Do a search under [you fill in the form]-a-day and see what comes up.

Have a poetry-filled month!


  1. As a writer who's not a children's writer,alas, I still wanted to say that I got a lot out of all the Poetry Month listings on this website. Thanks!

  2. I'm happy to hear it! I particularly like Garrison Keillor's readings, so I'd recommend checking out Writer's Almanac, if nothing else! Thanks for your comment!
