Launched by the Academy of American Poets in April 1996, National Poetry Month reminds the public that poets have an integral role to play in our culture and that poetry matters. Over the years, it has become the largest literary celebration in the world, marking poetry's important place in our lives. In 2021, we are celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of this annual celebration!
