National Poetry Month kickoff

April 1, 2017

Time. This National Poetry Month, we celebrate time: its gifts, its history, its potential. We celebrate your ten-thousand-hour dedication to mastery. We celebrate your drafts, your notes, your failed projects, your future success. We celebrate the journey. We invite you to join us in celebrating the timeless journey of poetry this April: share the most important moments from your literary history, or tell us about the most exciting parts of your literary future. Rejoice in nostalgia, or shake your pencil at the hours that just keep slipping away from your work in progress. Celebrate your ten thousand hours.

Find out more about National Poetry Month at and get involved today!
