From All Lit Up:
Last year we raised our poetic fists for National Poetry Month with Poets Resist, a month-long celebration of poetry as a form of resistance. This year, we’re taking a deep breath and preserving our collective strength with Poetry Cure, a series dedicated to poetry as a mode of healing. Every day on All Lit Up, we’ll chat with a different poet and share a poem that we hope will be a little breath of fresh air as you move through your day. Plus, sign up for our Daily Poetry Cure newsletter and get a poem delivered to your inbox every day for the whole month. So go ahead and check out our cool, fresh line-up of poets coming your way starting on April 2.
